Originally formed in Davenport, Iowa in 2005, The Parish Festival's journey began in the Midwest, spreading a sound that fuses gypsy jazz, country and pop. After a brief hiatus, the group banded together again in 2012, this time with a new lineup, and a new home: Austin.
On Tuesday, May 28, The Parish Festival released its self-titled EP, which is available exclusively for streaming via CultureMap. Take a listen to the subtle, gypsy styling of The Parish Festival here, or enjoy a free download of single "Palamino" and "Function And Respond."
The Parish Festival celebrates its release with a party on Sunday, June 2 at Spider House Ballroom. The show, which begins at 8 p.m., will include sets from Sons of Santos and The Couch.
