D is for Duo



This product is included in: Swarb!
Seventeen classic duo performances
Australian Fairport expert Michael Hunter says that playing with Swarb was one of life’s ambitions achieved. Their collaboration was not recorded. Others were….and here is the best of those who have played alongside “the musical partner at the top of every folkie’s wish-list”.
Like so much in the folk revival, “it all began with Bert” (copyright – M. Carthy). This CD brings together, in the order they happened, seventeen choice collaborations with Swarb over a period of thirty-seven years. Jack or Tom? You decide! 79 minutes
