Yvonne Parkes

I first saw Yvonne in the Muggery during Upton on Severn festival a couple of years ago. Last year I got round to asking her to Miskin. And I think you will agree that was a good idea.

Here's what she says about herself :

"My main style is old time appalachian frailing. Main influences are the Carter family, Laurie Lewis, Debbie McClatchy & Sara Grey. I also enjoy playing self penned songs and some written by my friend Pete Boddis (local song writer from Stourbridge) ".


Debbie McClatchy is certainly a favorite of mine and Yvonne certainly has the style. Watch out for Yvonne in "Celebrate the Tradition " on Saturday afternoon.
