Jim & Penny Malmberg


With roots down to bedrock and branches up to the prairie sky, Jim and Penny are a husband-and-wife duo from Edmonton, Alberta. They raised a family before they got around to writing music together. Songs about love of all kinds are delivered with humour and passion on guitars, mandolin, and their intimate harmony voices. They play bluegrass, old-time swing, folk, and jazz
influenced music and have traveled western Canada and beyond from their headquarters in Edmonton, Alberta. 

Jim and Penny are no strangers to Blueberry. When they're not showcasing their songwriting talents, they keep busy fronting the band Back Porch Swing. Festival performance highlights include appearances at both the North and South Country Fairs, Blueberry Bluegrass Festival, Burningman, Robson Valley Music Festival, 
Coombs Bluegrass Festival, and the Northern Lights Bluegrass and Old Tyme Music Festival. Their latest CD “We’re Here For Love” was released in 2018.
