The Swigshift

We could not think of a better way to celebrate St Patrick's Day than with a performance by The Swigshift, a beacon of the Flemish folk scene for over 30 years.

Thirty years already, The Swigshift has left its mark on the folk scene in Flanders. Apart from performances in all corners of Belgium, they have their concerts in France, the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Ireland and the United States. A better ambassador in regional Celtic folk is hard to find. Five CDs in-house, a classic tour on CD and numerous guest recordings are therefore their meritorious contribution to our music landscape.

Just as modest as it is exciting

Anyone who knows The Swigshift will know what to expect: intimate moments and stirring reels and jigs, interspersed with haphazard quips, which in their own mix make for a compelling evening full of delight and pleasure.
