Schwa with Dales Jam

Schwa with Dales Jam


Formed in 2012, they’ve made three albums together and performed at numerous venues and arts festivals around the north of England.

Schwa is Peter Spafford on piano/vocals, Jacqui Wicks on vocals, and Richard Ormrod on everything else. Formed in 2012, they’ve made 3 albums together and performed at numerous venues and arts festivals around the north of England.

‘Prog Folk’, ‘Urban Parlour’? Apart from their original music, Schwa often take poems by a range of poets dead and alive – Alfred Lord Tennyson, Edward Thomas, Kathleen Jamie – and set them to intelligent, emotive music.

Playful, but not frivolous; intricately constructed songs that constantly surprise whilst sounding like you’ve always known them. It’s good to know that music can still bring new joy. (Pancakes for Davros)

Vivid lyricism and authentic vocals blended with fantastic, eclectic arrangements. (Testament)

Dales Jam, are a 30-piece global music orchestra from Skipton conducted by Richard Ormrod.
