Anders Parker recently returned to his adoptive home of Burlington after living in one of the most isolated places on Earth, the town of Alert in Canada’s Nunavut province. Since the mid-2000s, he’s recorded his burly, country-tinged alt-rock under his own name after formerly performing in bands Varnaline and Space Needle. Parker’s most recent album, There’s a Blue Bird in My Heart, is an unbridled, raucous masterpiece. His live band, Cloud Badge, features local drummer Steve Hadeka of Seth Yacovone Band and artisan guitar craftsman Creston Lea. Check out Anders Parker and Cloud Badge on Friday, January 6, at ArtsRiot in Burlington, with locals the Welterweights.
