SwearAndShakeSwear and Shake | Live at the Baby Grand Wilmington

Time Out New York says Swear and Shake is the “Postcard-perfect indie folk with an undercurrent of sly humor” and New York Times articulates the group in a few words: “Folksy, foot-stomping rock.” Newsday praised the band, comparing them to indie darlings Mumford & Sons and Bon Iver. Despite the band’s critical acclaim, attending a Swear & Shake show feels like a cozy, crowded room of old friends where a guitar is picked up as the last bottle is poured.  For more information visit: Swear and Shake | Live at the Baby Grand Wilmington
