Heidi Swedberg and the Sukey Jump Band
Hear the sweet melodies of singer/ukulele player Heidi Swedberg and get your dancing shoes ready. An actress best known as George Costanza’s fiancée on Seinfeld, Swedberg first started playing ukulele growing up in Kailua, Hawaii. Swedberg has released two albums, Play (2009) and My Cup Of Tea (2013), which Hearth Music called “one of the catchiest, most infectiously joyful albums that I’ve heard in a while.”
