+ EDDY SMITH & THE 507
A songwriter genuinely literate, sometimes almost literary, Ian is an original craftsman. His ability and willingness to share with his audience, naked honesty and genuine emotion, is what sets him apart.
His latest recording – Spoonful of Gold (Blues for Willie) a selection of gems from the depthless back catalogue of blues legend Willie Dixon could easily have produced pale imitation but he has delivered a respectful vibrantly coloured innovative album.
With nothing to prove and still so much to say, Ian Parker remains an act not to be missed.
