Panel 3


With a sound rooted in the haze of the English folk revival, Henry Parker takes up a style crafted by players such as Bert Jansch and Nick Drake in the 1960’s and early 70’s. The open tuned acoustic calls to mind ‘Folk-Baroque’, a term once used to describe all those who followed in the footsteps of the great originator Davy Graham. While his songs and tunes arrive either worked from his own hand, or are borrowed and developed from the traditional British folk cannon. Those that have seen him perform on a hollow-body electric guitar, understand the influence and impression that modern jazz has made on his music.
