Back Porch Swing plays a blend of swing, traditional, and original songs and tunes. Voices in tight harmony are complimented by the double fiddling of Nancy Hanna and Deb Hunemuller, the sweet sounds of Dee Christensen's mandolin, the versatile guitar of Greg Starling and the bass and whistles of Riley McLaughlin. The band has performed around the northwest since 1991 and has played at Northwest Folklife for a number of years. Back Porch Swing has recorded three CDs, Snapshot, Running for the Ferry and Amaryllis Café. "As good as they are at performing swing music from the thirties and forties, and as much fun as they have with occasional novelty songs, they equal that level in the tunes the band members write in the Celtic vein....Olympia is a better place due to the presence of Back Porch Swing." - Bill Compton, Victory Music Review.
