Walter Parks, Amy Fairchild

Walter Parks, Amy Fairchild
Walter Parks  - For ten years, musician and writer Walter Parks toured the world and recorded as sideman/guitarist to Woodstock legend Richie Havens. He later went on to perform with The Nudes and Swamp Cabbage and is currently performing his solo show: SWAMP BY CHANDELIER.  Parks, a Florida native, presents a creative mix of swamp blues, folk and jazz delivered sometimes in an ambient style and sometime in a gritty-rootsy style. Parks’ repertoire is half originals and half covers that he performs on acoustic and electric guitars. As a solo artist Walter played the U.S., Canada, Germany and Spain. As guitarist for Mr. Havens, Parks played the entire world with notable concerts at Madison Square Garden, Carnegie Hall and The Glastonbury Festival in England. In 2014, Walter performed at Lincoln Center with Judy Collins for the Pete Seeger tribute concert. For fans of Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen this would be a recommended show.

Amy Fairchild is a multi-award winning songwriter living in Boston, MA. Right from the start of her musical career in Northampton, MA in the mid 90's, this roots-pop beauty garnered high honors revealing a talented songwriter who deftly gets to the heart of the matter. She won the Lilith Fair Talent Competition in 1999 and took home a top Kerrville Folk Festival prize in 2001. She continued to bring home honors with the release of her 2002 record, "Mr. Heart" (produced by Adam Steinberg) including  The John Lennon Songwriting Competition, Maxell Song of the Year and the Billboard World Song Competition. Renowned rock critic Dave Marsh said, “If there still was a recording industry, this would come out on a major label and would be such a big hit you’d be sick of her by now. Not many people make records this good.” With 12 years between recordings, in June 2014 she released her self-titled third record to the acclaim of the best music writers including the legendary Steve Morse.  Amy shows no signs of taking her foot off the gas with the release of her fourth record, "Nobody's Satellite" (April, 2017) again produced by Steinberg. Mike Greenblatt in The Aquarian Weekly says this, "When singer/songwriter Amy Fairchild released her impressive 2014 self-titled cd, it was so good that I fell in love with her immediately. "Nobody's Satellite" is even better. Twenty years in she's just reaching her near-brilliant stride."
