About Graham Parker & Brinsley Schwarz
Graham Parker has worked with guitarist Brinsley Schwarz since 1975 when they first met and rehearsed together in a band that became known as Graham Parker and The Rumour. Since then, Schwarz has often accompanied Parker on post-Rumour records and tours and recently joined him onstage as a duo playing songs from all areas of Parker’s career. Expect songs from early albums with the Rumour, his solo career and the present day with tunes from the two latest Rumour reunion albums, “Three Chords Good” and “Mystery Glue.”
In Spain, Norway and the UK, where a recent triumphant tour ended in a sold out Union Chapel show to 900 enthusiastic fans, the music the duo performed was varied, creative and exciting in equal measure, along with a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of humor from Parker as – with the aid of Brinsley’s virtuoso musicianship – he reinvents his prodigious catalog.
What Other People Have Been Saying...
“One of the sharpest songsmiths of the U.K. rock scene in the late Seventies, Graham Parker always owed more to Dylan and Van Morrison than to his punk counterparts.” – Rolling Stone
“Parker’s voice has suffered nothing from the years of constant touring. He sounds as good today as he did in 1976.” – Pop Matters
“Britain’s answer to Bruce Springsteen… his voice retains its gravel, grit, anger, and soaring soul” – Manchester Evening News
