Sunday Sessions presents: Mike Parker @ Kings Arms Hotel
Jun 5 @ 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Trad blues, folk, Americana and acoustic rock come together skillfully in the repertoire of singer/songwriter Mike Parker. So, if you’re a fan of strong musicianship, meticulous yet free guitar picking and have a love of steel guitars then you will not be disappointed. Mikes distinctive technique presents a truly original delivery of classics alongside a classic delivery of originals.

Mike originally hails from Manchester but has recently relocated to South Wales to continue along the path of solo performer. He has toured extensively over the years both as a solo artist and with his band Stone Sole River opening for American blues virtuoso Joe Bonamassa on several of his UK tours and more recently supporting Fish (Marillion) on his last full UK tour. The past few years have also seen him perform with luminaries of classic rock such as Robin Trower, Leslie Wests Mountain, Walter Trout, The Blue Oyster Cult and Wishbone Ash.

Sunday Sessions presents: Jess Childs @ Kings Arms Hotel
Jun 12 @ 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm

As an original singer songwriter with a penchant for making each and every cover song her own, my aim is to connect with the guts of any tune and sing it directly to you.

From naming ceremonies set in the wooded wilds, to top drawer festivals with a national name, I’ve played my way through hundreds of sets created specifically with each individual audience in mind. Using a powerful vocal and a warm and simple guitar accompaniment, I’ve danced countless first dances, walked brides down the aisle, welcomed in a great many guests and wished so many beautiful people a most wonderful celebratory day over the years.

As a grubby blonde urchin growing up in rural Wales, my mother’s love of all things Bob Dylan and Joan Baez (to name a few) permeated the walls of our family farmhouse and the simple sound of a vocal with acoustic guitar settled itself within my soul. Since then I’ve drawn on all that inspired me as a child to make a host of musical messages sing in a range of bold and beautiful settings, and have had the pleasure of singing at the most personal of occasions over the years as well as at a wide range of well-known public events too.

Along the way I’ve also written, recorded and launched my own EP The Plaster, and appeared under my own steam at festivals including the National Audio Show, Brecon Jazz Fringe Festival, How The Light Gets In, Hay Festival Winter Festival and many more.
