HENRY PARKER
Having spent the past 5 years playing headline concerts and supporting many of his musical heroes, including Michael Chapman, Wizz Jones and Bridget St John, Henry Parker’s 2nd album ‘Lammas Fair’ has brought him closer to the forefront of the progressive folk music world.

Heralded by Prog Magazine and Folk Radio alike it is in this latest release that Parker has evolved a style that is distinctly his, a meeting between 60s and 70s folk music, the northern moorland landscape and the rock background of his childhood.

‘Henry Parker’s relaxed vocals and song writing are as warm and open as his tunings’ - 8/10 UNCUT Magazine

‘Channelling the ghosts of Bert Jansch and John 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 

David Ian Roberts takes inspiration from great acoustic guitarists such as Nick Drake and Elliott Smith and brings in elements of classical and jazz music. His lyrical imagery finds parallels between our emotional landscapes and the natural world
 
‘Travelling Bright is a quietly exceptional album, dreamy and intimate, but borne up on rich elaborate arrangements…. [Roberts] writes deeply introspective songs, and renders them in rich orchestrated widescreen… dreamlike soliloquies, steeped in mythology and the natural landscape, and presented with an airy spaciousness that carves out avenues for the mind to wander. – Uncut Magazine
 
‘David Ian Roberts album From The Harbour is a gently seductive joy which reveals new depths on every listen. A quiet masterpiece. I recommend this record to you unreservedly’.
Mark Radcliffe – BBC Radio 2
 
‘David Ian Roberts follows up last year’s superb and underrated ‘Travelling Bright’ with ‘From The Harbour’, recorded for the lovely Cambrian Records (home of Toby Hay and Jim Ghedi). Recorded in his home in Cardiff, ‘From the Harbour’ is a pastoral, progressive folk masterpiece. Bathed in glorious harmonies and a paisley-patterned eastern feel, tinged with sunshine and patchouli, ‘From the Harbour’ is simply beautiful’. – Under The Radar
