Joyann Parker

All Ages
"A powerful, animated blues-rock singer, capable guitarist and pianist, and a writer of praiseworthy originals." - Star Tribune

Celebrated vocalist Joyann Parker treats us to a tour through the life and career of Patsy Cline, performered dozens of time at Crooners and back by popular demand!

Joyann Parker brings a full range of talent to her performances as an accomplished singer, pianist, guitarist and songwriter. She has performed for thousands at major venues and festivals across the country, frequently sells out some of the most prestigious clubs in the Midwest and garnered national and international attention for her newest record, "Hard To Love," including features in DownBeat and Living Blues Magazine. Joyann is a 2018 Blues Blast Magazine Music Award nominee and Heritage Guitars artist. She has also represented Minnesota at the 2015 International Blues Competition in Memphis, TN and won the award for 2016's Best Self-Produced CD from the Minnesota Blues Society.

"Joyann Parker presents a package of originals and serves notice that she’s a blues performer to the bone. Bravely risking emotional exposure, this Minneapolis- based singer and multi-instrumentalist shows a penchant for depicting a unique response to the ups and downs of life. The album sweeps through well-titled numbers like “Envy,” “Evil Hearted,” and “Take My Heart And Run.” Parker and company work styles ranging from Chuck Berry and bluesy funk to French Quarter parades and Memphis soul approximations."
