Bo and Paul Parker return to Placerville for concert

From page B6 | June 27, 2014 |

Bo and Paul Parker will be appearing at the Wine Smith, 346 Main St. in Placerville, on Saturday, June 28 starting at 8 p.m. Their last appearance in Placerville was in June 2000. This rare performance will feature elements of folk, jazz and blues featuring Paul’s muscular lead guitar with Bo’s solid rhythm guitar and vocals.

Bo and Paul first met and worked together in 1972 in Placerville at American River College. They later moved to the east coast and began to play in coffee houses and small clubs, eventually marrying in Placerville in 1975 and settling in Portland, Ore.

Paul started his musical career in Placerville bands Crystal Frog and Triad with local musicians Bob Baszt, John Whitlock and others in the late ’60s and early ’70s.

They have performed as a duo and together with Daniel Crommie in the trio Group du Jour on their independent label, New Weave Records, producing more than a dozen critically praised recordings over 30 years.

They have appeared in many of Portland’s music venues, on television and local radio stations and opened for artists such as Suzanne Vega and Richard Barone.

Four years ago Paul was diagnosed with a debilitating and painful neuropathic disorder. For a while he was unable to play guitar (or do much of anything else) but is now happily able to play again.

For more information call 530-622-0516.
