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 & The Rumour. Since then, Schwarz has often accompanied Parker on post-Rumour records and tours and recently joined him on-stage 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.”

Expect an evening of varied, creative and exciting music in equal measure. Along with a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of humour from Parker – with the aid of Brinsley’s virtuoso musicianship – join this duo as they reinvent Parker’s prodigious catalogue.

With support from Stephen Wilson Jnr.
