David Parry – The Man From Eldorado

This recording is a masterpiece created by singer, songwriter, and storyteller David Parry, from the writings of Canadian poet Robert Service. Following a narrative shape inspired by Service himself, Parry leads us through the many phases of Robert Service’s life, from the poignant and poetic to the outrageous and gregarious. The Northern stories for which Service is most famous are well represented here, along with work from his Paris bohemian days, World War I experiences and much else. Many of the poems are set to tunes for the first time, with melodies that echo turn of the century music hall and British folk traditions. Songs and poems are woven together into a seamless whole, for a wonderful theatrical and musical experience. Also known from his work with the folk group “The Friends of Fiddler’s Green” and from his innovative theatre work at the Canadian Museum of Civilization, David Parry brought his immense acting and musical talents to bear in what was to be his final recorded work. Borealis is proud to give this album the greater appreciation it deserves. “…Now, thanks to David Parry, I can wallow in verse from the Yukon, tall tales, outrageous rhymes and sagely advice…great fun!” -Sing Out!
