Hospital Fundraiser - April 30, 2016

We were privileged to be a part of the Calhoun Liberty Hospital fundraiser today. We got to work with a great group of people. Ruth Attaway, Hospital Board Chairperson, was instrumental in pulling it together. My brother, Sheriff Glenn Kimbrel, did the cooking, and lots of other volunteers help make it a great success. Thank you to all who participated in some way!  

Torreya State Park fun! - February 7, 2016

We had such a fun time performing at Torreya State Park this weekend. Thanks for all the kind comments about our music. We camped the whole weekend and topped it off today with a 4 mile hike. It was wonderful! We're looking forward to our next gig!

Art and Music - April 14, 2015

WOW. What a wonderful time we've been having as Swiftwater sings along with the inspiring and beautiful art of Ann Williams. As scripture is added, one beholds the life of Christ as Biblical events unfold in a moving presentation like you've never seen. ART. MUSIC. SCRIPTURE. A beautiful portrayal of Jesus' life from birth to ascension. Call us if you would like us to share this program at your church or function. WE DO NOT charge for this event.

Madison benefit - February 22, 2015

Swiftwater was so glad they could share in the benefit for high school student, Madison Marshall. She needs all our support as she continues treatment for stage 3 brain cancer. The benefit was a great success. Thank you to all the wonderful people who supported and helped with this event! Helping neighbors is what it's all about!

and life moves on..... - September 17, 2013

NO down time between performances! When we're not performing and having music fun....Al and I are working hard to make a difference in children's lives. This year I'm teaching 3rd grade, and Al is working with special needs children in our school system. It keeps us busy, but never too busy to play music!

We had so much fun in Chattahoochee, FL, this past weekend as we performed downtown. Hanging with friends and fellow musicians is just TOO much fun!

Catoma Fire Department - August 31, 2013

Each year, the Catoma Fire Department in Montgomery, AL, hosts a fundraiser for muscular dystrophy, which is always a wonderful community event, where bands perform, friends gather, good food is shared....and all for a great cause. SWIFTWATER was honored to be a part of this event on August 24. Great job, Bobby and all the Fire Department families. 

May 1, 2013

We enjoyed this past weekend so much! The night in the courtyard at Blountstown Public library was magical as our old friends, Amy and Joan Alderman, filled in the set with us, along with AJ Thompson filling in for Larry on Bass guitar. The moon was out and the crowd was awesome!

On Sunday, we felt God's spirit move during the service as we shared our music, and that made it all worthwhile. What a wonderful blessing to see Larry and Carol there after open heart surgery.....Thank you, Kirk Thompson, for filling in for Larry on Sunday.....and thank you, Macedonia Baptist Church for blessing and feeding us that wonderful meal!!

We were honored and proud to be a part of the festival with talented bands such as NewFound Road, The Roys, Mountain Heart, The Stone Family, Florida State Bluegrass Band, and The Grascals (and others!). We enjoyed listening as much as performing, and we wouldn't take anything for our special friends, Frank and Lahona; Jerry and Pam; Buck and Darlene; Bruce and Patty, and all the other great people we met this weekend.

NEW SWIFTWATER MEMBERS - December 14, 2011

SWIFTWATER is making some changes! Joan and Amy have decided to leave Swiftwater so that Amy can pursue her dream of focusing on folk music and writing. Joan is spending lots of time at her North Carolina cottage and helping Amy when she's around home! We will miss them terribly, but God has already sent a wonderful musician to help fill in the gaps left by Joan and Amy. Sharyln Marie's sister, Mary Catherine Smith Jacobs, has joined us with her awesome vocal and fiddle talents. We are so excited and can't wait to share our combined sound. Mary Catherine and Sharlyln Marie are truly professionals who have played since they were youngsters all over the south when they were known as the Rivertown Girls. We welcome Mary Catherine to SWIFTWATER! Good luck and best wishes to Amy and Joan...we still expect them over for grill outs and coffee! 

Tennesse - May 6, 2011
