Black Swans of Trespass

The Black Swans of Trespass explore non-traditional uses of the five-string electric 5 String banjo, with double bass and drums. And fiddle. And sometimes trombone. Or whatever you got.

Under a previous incarnation The Black Swans of Trespass has released two albums which are available on iTunes Music Store. Duttigalla Exile (2007) and The Coward's Songbook (2008) each feature CC Thornley on banjo with bass, drums and clarinet performing original songs and traditional Australian folk songs and other covers.

The Black Swans of Trespass now perform a wide variation of traditional music including Mento (early reggae), Australian folk, New Orleans jazz, traditional and ragtime jazz, Tom Waits, and the Mario Bros. Theme.

And some bluegrass.
