Self-described as Yorkshire psych-folk, Henry Parker will be touring the UK this November alongside fellow artist David Ian Roberts, with both artists sharing headline duties.  

The tail end of their journey will take them to the North East, as the duo will be stopping at Durham’s Claypath Deli on Saturday 12th and North Shields’ The Engine Room on Sunday 13th November.  

With only two albums under his belt, Lammas Fair and Silent Spring, Parker has developed a dedicated loyal fan base. His music is less about the written lyrics, and more about the emotion carried through its instrumentals. These acoustic guitar compositions create a dynamic and folk-driven sonic atmosphere to get lost in. Highlight track Nine Herbs Charm prominently features a flute that playfully joins Parker’s vocals, with excellently demonstrates his mesh of differing, calming sounds. 

If you enjoy Parker, you’ll enjoy David Ian Roberts too; the artist shares the same relaxing atmosphere as Parker but has a higher emphasis on his gentle vocal performance. The track Rushing from his latest album, In Clover, best shows off the artist’s craftsmanship, being a vibrant and bright ballad.  

Henry Parker and David Ian Roberts play Claypath Deli, Durham on Saturday 12th and The Engine Room, North Shields on Sunday 13th November.
