Local live music promoter Let’s Go Baboon is only putting on one show this year but it doesn’t half promise to be a real good ‘un. It features the Minnesota-based folk blues artist Charlie Parr and fellow countryman and the Legendary Shack Shakers’ singer, J. D. Wilkes who will be appearing at The Crescent in York in three weeks’ time on the 29th of August.
Returning to play in Yorkshire for the first time in 18 months, this show forms part of a short UK tour that will see Charlie Parr also performing at both the End of the Road and Moseley Folk Festivals. The York date comes on the eve of the release on Red House Records of his self-titled album, a collection of new songs and new studio versions of classics/audience favourites from throughout Parr’s career.
J. D. Wilkes is the founder and only remaining original member of rockabilly outfit the Legendary Shack Shakers and a man who has also established parallel careers as a visual artist, amateur filmmaker and author. This will be his first UK show.
Local York legend Boss Caine will be opening on what promises to be a cracking evening of top-drawer musical entertainment.
