Nick Parker & The False Alarms
Nick Parker’s songs are often tongue-in-cheek and cheerful, and on the rare occasion when fun IS poked it is always with a wry smile and an element of satire. Although primarily a solo effort Nick often plays with his band ‘Nick Parker and the False Alarms’ which is a folky/rocky/country affair using guitars, fiddle, pedal steel, mandolin, bass and drums. Over the last few years they have played at many festivals including Farmer Phil’s, Chagstock, Glastonbury and Lakefest among many others.
The brilliant Italian-based trio YLAMAR perform their original songs with two voices working in perfect synergy, supported by the chemistry of the vocal percussions (beatbox) and the acoustic guitar and by the embracing tones of keyboard and piano.
