Henry Parker and Johnny Campbell

About

Henry Parker makes a welcome return to the mill along with Johnny Campbell.

With his eco-conscious debut album Silent Spring, Henry Parker laid down a new sound for modern folk music, drawing deep from the well of the sixties and seventies revival. His style is a clear joining of the past and the present, a unique voice in the folk world that echoes with sounds of the tradition, whilst venturing beyond, into the realms of modern folk-rock and psych.

A devoted guitarist since childhood, Henry Parker's musical roots go back to a self appointed upbringing in rock and heavy metal, yet, at the age of 20, paths were taken that led him adrift. Soon enthralled by the ethereal playing of Bert Jansch and Nick Drake; finger-picking and open tunings rapidly became the essence of his sound. Coupled with a love for his immediate moorland surroundings of West Yorkshire, we are presented with a strain of informed and progressive folk music found nowhere else.

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 brings 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 heavy metal background of his childhood.

"Original material and traditional songs create an immersive and mellifluous world in which both the peace and isolation of nature are unfurled and evoked through subtle arrangements" Lammas Fair review: Prog Magazine

Since 2015, Johnny Campbell has been writing self-penned material and delving deep into Northern English folk song and story. In that time Johnny has earned a formidable reputation on the British Folk and European underground scenes performing over 500 shows.

His most recent full length album, From Hull and Halifax and Hell took him to The Faroe Islands where he recorded a live album on the island of Nolsoy. This album earned him album of the week with Blues and Roots radio.

"The spirit of the folk clubs in their heyday runs in his veins" Folking.com
