Accompanying Dave Swarbrick

The main feature of this DVD is a documentary portrait of Swarb. The documentary was originally conceived and written by Swarb's long-time friend and collaborator Lars Kjaedegaard, a Danish novelist and musician who has backed Swarb on many tours of Denmark in the last thirty years. The film was made by Lars' daughter Sascha Pepke and her working partner Line Buttenschon. It offers an intimate portrait of Swarb on the road and chronicles his fifty-year long career, his victory over severe illness and shows his unique playing as seen through the eyes of his friend and accompanist. This package also includes one hour of original concert footage and a music CD capturing Dave and Lars live in Denmark.

Lion Rampant - Jason Wilson & Dave Swarbrick

Jason Wilson and Swarb team up for 'Lion Rampant', a convention-busting folk-reggae epic. Special guests include Martin Carthy, Pee Wee Ellis and John Kirkpatrick. According to Canadian reggae artist Dr Jason Wilson, Scottish and Irish music arrived in Jamaica roughly simultaneously with mento and ska's slavery-borne African roots, playing an under-recognised role in reggae's evolution. He also identifies all these sounds as rebel music, the unifying concept behind 'Lion Rampant'.
