Inga Swearingen & Guy Budd ~ Jazzy, Folky, Funky Blues

  • Live Oak Music Festival Live Oak Camp Highway 154, Santa Barbara, CA USA (map)

Inspired by songs from all over the world with a special nod towards American jazz standards, Inga Swearingen blends her influences into a juxtaposition of styles and emotions. Whether putting her personal stamp on a standard or a blues-tinged tone poem, Inga captivates her audience with her gift of joyful melodic invention.  Inga is a Central Coast favorite, but she has appeared on stages internationally, including the Montreux Jazz Festival, A Prairie Home Companion, and Carnegie Hall. Guy Budd is a longtime local performer whose masterful guitar work and smoky vocals imbue his blend of blues, rock, funk and jazz. Guy’s original compositions recall great artists of the past 50 years, such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix and Muddy Waters.
