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. His open tuned acoustic creates a sound that would fit the ‘Folk-Baroque’ label, a term used to describe those musicians who followed the path laid down by the great originator Davy Graham. 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.
“Henry Parker has a beautifully clear and precise finger picking acoustic guitar style…this isn’t background folk club music, or filler, it’s quite simply gorgeous.” – FATEA
“A gifted young guitar player who has been impressing local audiences with his dexterity and choice of material” – Tykes News
“Bloody excellent” – Wizz Jones
