For the past two years we have happily hosted the Aubrey Wilson Quartet as part of our Summer Days Performance Series at the Milton Farmers’ Market. This year, Aubrey will be performing with her sister in law Teri Parker as the Parker Wilson Duo. With the soft vocal stylings of Aubrey and Teri on keyboard, these two women are sure to bring a beautiful vibe on Saturday, June 21! (Beginning at 10 am).
After playing a few of their favourite songs together during 2014, Teri Parker and Aubrey Wilson formed a working band. Since then, the musicians have played over 100 weddings, as well as countless parties, jazz clubs, and festivals. Performing in a style that is acoustically subtle without sacrificing toe-tapping beats, the Parker Wilson Duo suits both wedding ceremonies and cocktail hours.
Teri Parker is a Toronto-based pianist, composer, and performer. She is a University of Toronto Jazz Performance graduate and has also studied in New York City under the tutelage of world-renowned pianists and composers Aaron Goldberg, Sophia Rosoff, and Guillermo Klein. Teri’s jazz band, the Parker Abbott Trio, has released three acclaimed original albums and toured across Canada.
