MODERN FOLK AND BLUES AND ALL POINTS IN BETWEEN!
JOSEPH PARSONS DUO return to the UK from Philadelphia for the second year following their acclaimed 2016 tour. Parsons is a prolific songwriter, recording artist and performer with over 20 commercial label releases. He brings a heart and soul to his songs through energy and emotional honesty, ranging from stories of people caught in hard times to uplifting songs of love and life.
Parsons’ releases are always a journey for the listener and his most recent, The Field The Forest (Blue Rose Records), is no exception. His music weaves elements of rock, folk & soul into his own distinct and authentic sound. Both as a solo artist, and also with his guitarist Freddi Lubitz, his stage shows are dynamic, spirited and deeply moving experiences.
DOGHOUSE ROSES are a highly acclaimed folk / Americana duo from Glasgow formed by guitarist Paul Tasker and singer Iona Macdonald in 2006. The tenth anniversary of the band was marked with the release of their third studio album, Lost Is Not Losing (Yellowroom Music) in November 2016 which has subsequently gained superb reviews across the music press. On the week of its release it was album of the week on BBC Radio Scotland, and the Daily Express declared that it ‘delivers an extraordinary punch’.
