Jetty Swart aka Jet Black Pearl: Spanning the globe with accordion / Coffeeshop Conversations @ Artichoke Music #362

By TOM D'ANTONI // Jetty Swart as Jet Black Pearl says she, "has performed in big tops, prisons, living rooms, tunnels, gardens sheds, barges and ruins all over the world." A most delightful Coffeeshop episode. 

It’s the last of a trio of inadvertent Coffeeshop Conversations with accordion players for which I have no explanation other than they all have clever, sparkling personalities.

First was Darka Dusty, then Courtney von Drehle and today it’s Jetty Swart. I asked her how to pronounce her name, and since I don’t edit these things, you’ll hear her explanation in detail including her other name, Jet Black Pearl.

She’s a composer, singer, accordionist and an all-around funny, singular personality who is married to the Bubble Man.

She is from the Netherlands and has travelled the world performing and leaving a trail of delight wherever she goes.

Including here. Meet Jetty Swart.
