Event description
The incomparable Oliver Swain returns to Cranberry Hall with singer and multi-instrumentalist Eli West from Seattle.

About this Event

When Oliver Swain and Eli West first shared a stage at The Islands Folk Festival, there was a certain magic in the air. Their shared love of Appalachian Traditions and Modern Folk brought them together but somewhere between the songs and tunes a certain chemistry emerged that thrilled the audience every bit as much as it did these two musicians. Inspired by those performances, Eli and Oliver are launching a new duo project this spring with concerts around BC and look forward to releasing their first album in early 2020.

Eli West

A Seattle-based acoustic musician on the rise. Known for his solo work and collaborations with British Columbia's favorite Bluegrass musician John Reischman, Norwegian fiddler Olav Mjelva, Cahalen Morrison, and more, the singer and multi-instrumentalist oozes understated talent.

"Making music the world needs" – Tim O’Brien

"Eli West is an exceptional singer, guitar player and musician, really deep stuff" – Martin Simpson

"I had such a wonderful time playing music with Eli West and am so happy our first notes together are documented here on this beautiful recording.” - Bill Frisell

Oliver Swain

A celebrated musician for years, held in high regard in acoustic and folk music styles for both his astonishing instrumental and vocal abilities, though he seldom gives the genre a fully traditional treatment. Oliver Swain strays towards the whimsical, the spiritual, and the socially conscious side of what he likes to refer to as "chamber folk odyssey", and it's these beguiling and provocative elements that make him unique as an artist and songwriter.
