Brent Parkin & Doug Andrew
Friday, October 12th, 2018
7:30 PM
Festival Place Cafe Series
100 Festival Way, Sherwood Park, Canada
From September through June, the Festival Place banquet facility is transformed into an intimate cafe setting for the Cafe Series by Qualico Communities. Brent Parkin and Doug Andrew were first teamed as members of the Come On In My Kitchen series and in short order the Winnipeg-based Parkin and the Vancouver-based Andrew became a mutual admiration society. Parkin loved the dark, image laden story songs that Andrew pens, while Andrew marvelled at Parkin’s vast knowledge of the blues, fine singing and brilliant guitar playing. Brent Parkin is a guitar player, singer songwriter and veteran of the Winnipeg Music Scene, playing for audiences across Canada for over forty years. He has been part of the backup band for such greats as Bo Diddley, Gate Mouth Brown, Otis Rush, Johnnie Johnson and has opened shows for such legends as James Cotton, Johnny Winter, Buddy Guy and John Prine. A career highlight was sharing the stage and tour bus with the legend BB King as the opening act on a Canadian tour in 1983. Honours include a 1993 Juno Award for his performance on the Saturday Night Blues Compilation, 2011 Western Canada Music Award Nomination for his CD, Vintage Rhythm and numerous Maple Blues Nominations including three nominations for Blues with a Feeling Award (Lifetime Achievement). In a career that began in Vancouver’s alternative music scene of the early Eighties, Doug Andrew has shared bills with everyone from The Ramones to Raffi to Ramblin' Jack Elliott. He is recognized as an accomplished singer-songwriter respected by critics, peers and music fans alike. The Edmonton Journal has described his songs as having "slightly twisted, always interesting storyline lyrics" delivered "with an energetic thrust that falls just shy of reckless abandon." SEE Magazine said his songs "should shuffle him off into the Canadian musical songwriting hierarchy" while the Vancouver Province described things this way, “Andrew is a great songwriter...while The Circus In Flames are his extraordinarily sympathetic band...a weird mix of musical eclecticism built on a dark folklore." Circus In Flames recordings have drawn rave reviews in North America and Europe, including the latest, Outside America. Festival Place, 100 Festival Way, Sherwood Park (Edmonton), AB T8A 5T2. Box Office: 780-449-3378. General Inquiries: 780-464-2852.
