‘Summer Special’ Feature …


with special guest fiddler, Terry Snider 

Al Parrish entered the world of folk/roots music in 1989, when he and three friends created Brean Derg Muc, a Toronto-based band that took the Ontario folk festival scene by storm during two years of brilliant success.  Following this he freelanced in Ontario and the Maritimes with The Barnstormers, David Stone, October Browne, Kirk Elliot, Aaron Solomon, Anne Lederman, Dave MacIsaac, Jamie Snider and many others.
Al then began a 17-year career with Tanglefoot, touring Ontario and then all across Canada.  In 1998 the band began playing in the US, and that summer made its UK debut. For the next 12 years, Al was on the road with Tanglefoot about 150 days a year playing dates in Canada, the US and Britain [including the prestigious ‘Whitby Folk Festival’ on the North Yorkshire coast!] In December 2009, the band played its final shows and disbanded.
Since then Al has been recording a solo CD, writing a memoire and a novel, recording voice-overs for commercial television and radio, video games and movies, & recently launching his solo musical performance career with several shows in the last couple of months, including an opening set for Celtic rockers Coole Park at their Toronto CD release, a concert for the Vital Spark Folk Club, and an appearance at the Jamland Festival.
