A Change of Tune: Meet Sarah Swain and the Oh Boys

Sarah Swain and the Oh Boys

  

Local musician Sarah Swain wasn’t always local. She was once a guitar player in a pop punk band in LA. They were about to make it big, but the music just wasn’t her style. So Sarah packed her car and disappeared in the middle of the night.

It wasn’t until she came to Cape Cod and formed the band, Sarah Swain and the Oh Boys, that she really found music she was happy playing.

This piece came to us from our production partners at Atlantic Public Media through their media training program, The Transom Story Workshop in Woods Hole. Ellery Lamm was in this spring's class.  You can find out more about that program at Transom.org
