Fiddler Travis Swanson Dislocates Shoulder Causing Change in Band Schedule

In light of Swanson Family Band member Travis Swanson’s recent New Year’s weekend snowboarding accident which resulted in a dislocated shoulder, the Swanson Family Band regrets to announce it will not be appearing at the First Baptist Church benefit concert as originally planned.  The group greatly appreciates all of the get well wishes and support it has been receiving since the accident. Travis’ spirits are good, and he is looking forward to a rapid recovery.
Travis has been playing fiddle since age nine and provides some of the groups lead and harmony vocals.  He has penned many of the songs on our most recent album like "Two In The Morning" and continues to write more. Although the fiddle is his main instrument, Travis is also a multi-instrumentalist, and plays guitar, piano, mandolin, and drums. In his free time when he's not playing music, he plays competitive soccer, tennis, and golf. We hope in time that his arm will be back to normal so he can continue to all of those things again!
Once more, thank you for all the support and well wishes.
