2014 marked the centenary of the start of The Great War (1914-1918). Swingvasion were proud to be part of commemorative events beginning that year. Honouring the service and sacrifice of all service personnel and civilians in this (and all) conflicts, we bring you a slice of life from the dancehalls of the ‘Ragtime’ era.
