Barry and Lorna Swallow – Saturday 13th July 2024

Barry & Lorna Swallow0

Barry and Lorna Swallow met through Folkie friends back in the late 1970’s. They shared a love of the music of Nic Jones, who has subsequently been a major influence on Barry’s guitar playing.

They settled in Taupo and raised their family there, and in retirement purchased their distinctive motorhome/bus which enabled them to enjoy the music and fellowship of folk festivals.

Barry uses open tunings on his guitar to work out intricate accompaniments, for songs he has chosen for their thought-provoking lyrics and strong melodies.

In recent years, Lorna has developed an interest in playing Celtic tunes on low whistles, tunes chosen for their memorable melodies.
