Over the last 10 years, Ian Parker has established himself throughout the UK, Europe and even the US as one of the leading roots songwriters and performers of his generation. With four albums and two live DVDs released through Ruf Records, numerous appearances on BBC Radio 2, and support shows for the likes of Eric Clapton, Parker has amassed a very respectable back catalogue, and an expansive following to match.
The Up Close and Intimate series saw Ian begin playing solo acoustic shows around the UK in February 2009. By August of that year, he had taken the show across the Atlantic for a run of dates culminating in a headlining appearance on the acoustic stage of the famous Bayfront Festival in Duluth Minnesota.
