Guitar hero? Consummate showman? Electrifying live performer? Ian Parker is all these things, but let’s face it, it’s the song that really counts and Parker offers something for everyone: rock, blues, roots, soul, gospel, funk are all to be found in the musical melting pot of a man fast becoming Britain’s best-loved blues / roots performer.

A genuinely literate songwriter, the man is rooted in the Blues but not trapped in them. Guitar lovers need not fret, there’s plenty to satisfy even the most demanding axe-head; but what lingers are the songs which get in your head and stubbornly refuse to leave, much like many an audience after a Parker gig. Performing here with with his full backing band, Ian Parker is all that is good about contemporary, guitar driven music.

Tonight’s very special guest is Steven Finn. From the driving rhythm of his amplified two-tone tap shoes, through the raw energy of his bottleneck and explosive harp playing, to the wonderful words delivered with true passion, Steven Finn electrifies audiences. Described as “one of the best young acoustic blues guitar players on two legs” Steven is also one of only 3 UK artists to be endorsed by Hohner harmonicas
