Viper Swing

Edinburgh-based Viper Swing dishes up hot gypsy jazz. Their fiery manouche guitars, high-flying violin melodies, and gravelly vocals evoke the spirit of the 20’s, 30’s & 40’s. The repertoire includes compositions of the legendary Django Reinhardt, songs from the Great American Songbook and other swing-era hits, some original numbers, and a few swing renditions of modern pop songs (Michael Jackson, ABBA, Bob Marley, etc.) thrown in for good measure. They perform regularly in Scotland and around the UK and after a chance encounter at a service station somewhere around the borders, they'll be making their way down to Beal Farm to kick off Lindisfarne Festival 2017 and will no doubt get the Viking Brewhouse swinging.
