Henry Parker Album Launch w/ Andy Horn 20/11/21
With his eco-conscious debut album 'Silent Spring', Henry Parker laid down a new sound for modern folk music, drawing deep from the well of the sixties and seventies revival. His style is a clear joining of the past and the present, a unique voice in the folk world that echoes with sounds of the tradition, whilst venturing beyond, into the realms of modern folk-rock and psych.
Lammas Fair is the natural progression and assimilation, the joining of the past and present and the discovery of a unique voice in folk music. The album launch show will see him joined by Louis Berthoud on drums and Rob McNicholas on electric bass, two phenomenal musicians who will work together to re-create the sounds of this varied and exciting new folk album.
“Channelling the ghosts of Jansch and Renbourn through his fingertips, the fluid playing and emotive singing of Yorkshire-born Henry Parker evokes the spirit of the early-60’s folk revival as if it were yesterday.” - RnR Magazine ★★★★★
Yorkshire slacker folk musician Andy Horn plays his own style of deadbeat songs and psychedelic jigs that blend together to make something unique. Taking influence from classic folk rock and traditional music his albums and live performances call to mind a meeting between John Martyn and Anne Briggs but bound together with a distinct present day grunge ethos.
