Jim and Penny Malmberg, a husband-and-wife duo, raised a family before they got around to publicly performing their music in 2003. Their music, an eclectic mix of folk, swing, bluegrass, and jazz, showcases their amazing vocal harmonies and sensational mandolin and guitar stylings.


Penny is a storytelling, singing, songwriting people person with a contagious zest for life. While she started playing guitar at the age of 13, it wasn't until her early 40's and her kids were grown that she dusted off her guitar and started writing songs.

Jim is a multi-instrumentalist whose passion for music was ignited by discovering Doc Watson as a young adult. His focus is on guitar and mandolin, writing and playing bluegrass, old-time music, folk, and early 20th century swing.

Jim and Penny, in addition to performing as a duo, front Back Porch Swing - a four-piece band - which adds depth (Cam Neufeld - fiddle) and a groove (Kevin Jacobson - bass) to their music.
