Recordings of traditional music by the late David Parry are a testament to his skills and Robert Service’s rich legacy.Born in England, David Parry began singing traditional music during the folk revival in the late 50’s. He came to Canada in the early 70’s and lived both on the West Coast and in Ontario. Until his untimely death in 1995, he performed solo, as a duo with Ian Robb, and as a member of the band The Friends of Fiddler’s Green, with whom he toured all across Canada and the U.S. He can be heard on their recordings “This Side of the Ocean” and “The Road to Mandalay,” and on his own previous recording “The Wind That Tramps the World.” In his professional guise he was a theatre director, actor, teacher, and creator of the live interpretation programme at the Canadian Museum of Civilization. Borealis is proud to release this testament to David Parry’s skills and Robert Service’s rich legacy.
