Ian Parker - November 2008

Here is an update from blues promoter Alan Pearson…

Just a quick note to let you know whats coming up in June. With June looking set to be the hottest month of the year what better than some laid back blues to go with a few cold beers!!!.

Friday June 12th – Ian Parker Trio at Poulton Community Hall, Breck Road, Poulton.

Ian’s having a bit of a change from the usual 4 piece band line-up as this tour features Ian on guitar/vocals, Chris Eaton (slide guitar) and Steve Amadeo (bass)

Doors open 8.30, 9.00pm showtime. Tickets £10. Let me know by email or phone (01253 890927) if you want to reserve tickets.

Wyre Blues continues at The Marine Hall on Thursday June 25th with a visit from Tommy Allen & Johny Hewitt.

Tommy has his own band,Traffiker and Johny usually appears with Smokehouse, a fine band from Cheshire but they have got together to play the music they both love.

The well-balanced musical mixture of Tommy Allen and Johny Hewitt has come from years of love and passion of the true blues. These two guys in everyday life perform in totally different style bands; though grown from the same roots, these roots are where Allen and Hewitt meet and take us on their very own journey to where the delta headed to Chicago and became electrified. You would have seen and heard music like this along Maxwell Street every day with the likes of Robert Nighthawk, Carey Bell and many other artists who bridged that pre-war acoustic and post-war urban electric styles. Tommy Allen and Johny Hewitt, the duo, are no-frills, no-nonsense, raw and honest and like Johny says, “Let the music speak for itself”.
