Celtic Connections : Jeff Parker + The New Breed

SATURDAY 25TH JANUARY 2020

Doors 7.30pm - 11.00pm

£17.50

“His sound is unmistakable, spastic and unpredictable, yet at the same time precise and
refined...history will certainly reflect that he is one of the more noteworthy guitarists of his
generation.” -Dusted Magazine
Jeff Parker (1967) is a multi-instrumentalist, producer and composer. A longtime member of the
influential indie-band Tortoise, Parker is recognized as one of contemporary music’s most
versatile and innovative electric guitarists and composers. With a prolific output characterized by
musical ideas of angularity and logic, he works in a wide variety of mediums - from pop, rock
and jazz to new music - using ideas informed by innovations and trends in both popular and
experimental forms. He creates works that explore and exploit the contrary relationships
between tradition and technology, improvisation and composition, and the familiar and the
abstract. His sonic palette may employ techniques from sample-based technologies, analog and
digital synthesis, and conventional and extended techniques from over 35 years of playing the
guitar.
An integral part of what has become known as “The Modern Chicago Sound” he is also a
founding member of the critically acclaimed and innovative groups Isotope 217 ̊ and Chicago
Underground, and has been an associate member of the Association for the Advancement of
Creative Musicians (AACM) since 1995.
A look at his work as a sideman offers a glimpse into Mr. Parker’s diversity. This list includes:
Andrew Bird, The Ex, Joshua Redman, Toumani Diabate, Nicole Mitchell, Yo La Tengo, Daniel
Lanois, Brian Blade and the Fellowship Band, Jason Moran, Matana Roberts, Joey
DeFrancesco, Nels Cline, Charles Earland, Ken Vandermark, Dave Douglas, Fred Anderson,
Tom Zé, and Meshell Ndegeocello.
Parker has released several albums as a leader, all to critical acclaim, including: Like-Coping
(2001), The Relatives (2004), Bright Light In Winter (2012) and The New Breed (2016).
Currently, he has been focusing on music production, small ensembles and solo performance –
to cultivate and establish an idiosyncratic relationship between electronic and acoustic
compositional properties in music.
