Chris Parkinson

(Accordion and organ)






Originally from Haslingden in Lancashire, now living in Whitby and possibly the second greatest accordionist in the world. He has been in the band from its inception around 1993.

Chris has recently recorded and performed alongside many of the folk world’s greats …. Ralph McTell, The Carthy’s, John Kirkpatrick, Steve Tilston, Maggie Boyle and Martin Simpson just to name a few.

Chris is also known around here as ’The Pie’, a soubriquet I believe he gave himself.
