"The Stew: Swamp Cabbage is the stewed heart of a Florida Sabal palm tree, it is low in cholesterol and a good source of dietary fiber, Vitamins A and C, calcium, and iron. Served with brown rice.
The Movie (10 minute
looped documentary): A short vignette of contemporary Florida crackers
(early settlers). It seeks not only to tell Florida stories, but to
address the growing global contemporary concerns for loss of connection
to the land, to animals, to diverse food sources, to community, and
ultimately, to ourselves.
The Band. Swamp Cabbage chose the band name to remind listeners of it’s Northeast
Florida well source of inspiration, Swamp Cabbage presents one of the
most unique trios on the trail today. Walter Parks (longtime sideman to
Woodstock legend Richie Havens) on gnarly fingerpicked electric guitar,
New Orleans style drummer Jagoda and by Peter Sparacino unorthodoxly
covers the bass role on baritone sax. Florida’s Swamp Cabbage is a
high-energy southern soundtrack that’s soaked in the grease drippings of
Mississippi blues, Memphis soul, Louisiana jazz and even Appalachia.
