Stumpjumper Australian Tour 2016
with support EAGLE & THE WOLF
Sunday 6th March 2:00pm
A favourite of Australian audiences thanks to his national tour supporting for Paul Kelly, dates with You Am I and spots on festivals such as Falls, Sunset Sounds, Southbound and Wave Rock, Parr returns to Australia in support of his latest album ‘Stumpjumper’. His first release for acclaimed indie label Red House Records ‘Stumpjumper’ - 10 originals and his version of the venerable murder ballad, ‘Delia’ - could be lost field recordings from another era. Switching between acoustic guitar, dobro and banjo his blistering picking and keening, cut-through-the-crowd vocals resonate with a conviction that runs deep and true. It's the music of a self-taught guitarist and banjo player who grew up listening to his dad's recordings of America's musical founding fathers, including Charley Patton and Lightnin' Hopkins, Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly.
