Remembering Ward Swingle (1927-2015)
Yesterday was a very sad day for all of us in The Swingles, and everyone who has been part of the group's story over the last 52 years, as we lost our founder, friend and mentor Ward Swingle at the age of 87. Ward was a huge musical inspiration to us as well as a wise and kind grandfather to the group that carries his name. We look forward to celebrating the great man's life and work with fans, former Swingles and friends throughout the year, and we'll be announcing some special events and material soon. In the meantime, we have been incredibly touched by the many warm tributes and memories that have been flooding in and wanted to bring some of them together on this page.
