A nice crowd joined us for an evening of music with Dennis W. Parker and friends on Friday night, Jan. 18 2019. Dennis is a member of the GRAMMY-winning band Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder where he sings and plays guitar. Dennis has also played professionally with Lee Ann Womack, Tracy Lawrence, Joe Diffie, Mark Chesnutt, as well as others.
He is an amazing instrumentalist who has won state contests on fiddle, banjo, and guitar, and is also one of the most soulful vocalists in music today. He brings his smooth, relaxed style to bluegrass, country, gospel, pop, and soul music and makes it enjoyable for everyone.
Dennis sang a wide range of songs made popular by artists such as James Taylor, Joe Diffie, the Stanley Brothers, Bonnie Raitt, and many more, and shared stories of his life journey and Christian walk. He was joined on upright bass by Alan Tompkins and also by the Purple Hulls, Katy and Penny Clark, for several songs. Dennis also asked Jessica Tompkins to join him on stage to sing Good Good Father.
