Halifax-based folk-roots singer-songwriter Thom Swift is performing at Glasgow Square on Sunday.

Swift’s last album, The Legend of Roy Black, was nominated for a 2017 East Coast Music Award for Folk Recording of the Year as well as two 2016 Music Nova Scotia Awards.

It’s full of Pictou County influences, with a track named after Toney River, a cover of one of the late folksinger Jim Dorie’s tunes, J.P. Cormier on mandolin, violins and banjo, and mixed and mastered by Dave Gunning, who also plays guitar on the record, at Wee House of Music.

Swift has shared the stage with noted performers such as Rosanne Cash, John Hiatt, Bill Frisell, John Mayall, and Pinetop Perkins and he is co-founder of award-winning folk-blues-jazz group, Hot Toddy Trio, who have performed at music festivals worldwide.

His show is scheduled for May 7 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 in advance for regular admission, $15 in advance for students, and $30 at the door.
