Liverpool singer/songwriter backs The Mural Project

Imagine if Woody Guthrie joined The Jam. That is the sound of The Alun Parry Band. Referred to by the Liverpool Echo as "a Merseyside folk God", Alun Parry is one of Liverpool’s foremost acoustic based performers and songwriters. His packed gigs are described as the number one night out in Liverpool, and his album Corridors of Stone received widespread critical acclaim. BBC Radio’s Folkscene, Britain’s longest running folk music radio show, recently profiled Alun Parry’s work and music in a one hour special.

"I hope this project succeeds. it would be a great addition to 2008 that would add lots to Liverpool life. My view is that this would be a real favourite amongst Liverpool people. and if the Liverpool culture company aren't in favour, I'd take that as a compliment! Bestests, Al 8-)"

Alun Parry is a top man and if he supports the project that should be enough to get it going, this fella cares more about Liverpool than any of the 'Culture Club'
