Ukefest - Daniel Ward & Heidi Swedberg
Heidi Swedberg & Daniel Ward
Entry Requirements: 18+ after 7pm
London Ukulele Project presents: Daniel Ward and Heidi Swedberg as part of the Wandsworth Fringe Festival.
Born in Hawaii Heidi’s first ukulele was given to her by the Easter Bunny at just 5 years old. She has been a performer for more than 30 years working in music, film and television, notably playing the role of “Susan” on Seinfeld.
In 2009 Heidi introduced her partner Daniel to the ukulele and he too fell in love with the instrument. Having previously been a touring guitarist with artists such as Maria Benitez and Ottmar Leibert all of the music inside him found a new home on the four strings. Since then, he has become a premier ukulele performer and clinician known for his command of Latin and world styles, with an expressive right hand that delivers beauty, speed and force.
Currently based in LA, Daniel and Heidi have collaborated on recordings and instructional books and are regular contributors to Ukulele Magazine. Both Daniel and Heidi have been featured performers and workshop instructors at festivals across the United States and abroad.
