Regarded as one of the UK’s most distinguished and original songwriters Graham Parker is perhaps best known as lead singer of Graham Parker and The Rumour who preceded the arrival of punk rock and new wave, his career has spanned over forty years and was recently reinvigorated when acclaimed US film producer and director Judd Apatow cast Parker in his hit film This Is 40, featuring a performance by Graham Parker and The Rumour that signalled the band to reform to play a series of now legendary come back concerts.

Expect songs from early albums with The Rumour, including picks from the re-worked Squeezing Out Sparks solo acoustic 40th anniversary album (released March 2019), his solo career (Cloud Symbols) and tunes from recent Rumour reunion albums.
