Ward & Parker

New duo Ward & Parker are John Parker, previously of JCB song fame in Nizlopi, and Cliff Ward, founding member of folk supergroup The Willows. The combination of JP’s beautiful soaring double bass and beatboxing style accompanying Ward’s excellent songs and guitar playing is a perfect and charismatic blend. Performing a diverse mix of alternative acoustic, jazz and folk-pop with fine musicality, flair and dynamism, between them they have performed with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Kate Rusby, Newton Faulkner and Nick Cave, and already are attracting rave reviews. www.wardnparker.com
