"Walter Parks is an extraordinary singer whose songs can break your heart as well as get you dancing. Lyrical and political, personal and otherworldly at the same time, transcendent as well as down to earth, Walter is a musical treasure, an artist of the highest caliber. To hear him is to be lifted into a mystical sphere. I adore him." - Judy Collins

Founder of the swamp blues outfit Swamp Cabbage and having toured for 10 years with Woodstock legend Richie Havens, Walter learned the importance of delivering songs with relevant stories. Walter now lives in New York but he grew up in Florida and is researching the music that was made in the Okefinokee Swamp near where he grew up from Smithsonian Archives. He is presenting re-imagined arrangements of this southeast Georgia swamp music, originals and some Richie Havens songs in his show. For fans of Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen this would be a recommended show.

"A listen to Parks' soulful Americana rock is to be immersed in warm guitar melodies, smoky vocals and troubadour narratives that gather strength with age.”
