Swimming to Florida is the vocal pairing of Greg Thompson and Lesley Braithwaite. Seasoned performers in their own right, they join forces for the NBMF to deliver a soulful mash-up of audience faves and indie gems .
Thompson has a unique affinity for guitar, a fine voice, and a wicked sense of humour. Combine this with a serious passion for music and everything from a jig to a slow dance has heart.
Braithwaite's primary performance experience is through the medium of dance. Whilst in San Francisco exploring the Tango scene, she landed an unexpected gig singing in a bar which inspired an ongoing fascination with the spellbinding potential of the chanteuse.
"One of the standouts of the concert was the moving performance by Greg Thompson."
"Stunning voices, incredibly powerful presentation, fabulous songs . . . no wonder the audience loved them!" - Wayne Richmond (Humph Hall)
