Date: Friday September 7th
Time: 12:45 PM - 1:30 PM
A free weekly concert presented by the City of St. John’s with youth opening performers programmed by the Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Arts Society!
Ladies and gentlemen, With a career that spans half a Century and covers the ground from Abbey Rd. Studios to…..“way out in the Goulds baby”….please welcome the undisputed heavyweight champ of the blues, Mr. Denis Parker!
Denis Parker epitomizes the blues of “The Rock”! His influences and impact is paramount in our province. The Modern Saints consists of Novaks Mick Davis and Elliott Dicks on rhythm and John Clarke on guitars. This tight combo are mean in their gritty, rock N’ roll blues swagger to form an alchemy with Parker (who has never sounded better). Great to hear him back on electric guitar. Live off the floor in essence, smokin’ hot in spirit. Chalk up the cue – Let’s do this.
“…these nine tracks breathe with a life all their own, delivered with more heart than most bands can muster in a lifetime…”
