About the event

Welcome the Swingbillies back to HVFS!!  They will be playing improvisational music rooted in Appalachian and Turkish traditions. You won't want to miss this!

The Swingbillies of Boonetown is an acoustic ensemble centred around the unlikely musical

brotherhood of Southern Appalachian fiddler, Meade Richter, and Turkish finger-style guitarist,

Savash Altuntas. Their music is compelling, emotional, and dynamic, melding elements from

their backgrounds in American and Middle Eastern traditions with modern influences and the

refinement of their conservatory training to deliver a performance that is unique, poignant, and

mesmerising. With haunting vocal harmonies and spontaneous instrumental improvisations,

they tell the story of two rural artists from opposite sides of the globe who have traveled the

world and united through music, conveying universal themes of seeking enlightenment,

inspiring joy, and overcoming hardship.
