The Itinerants: Here's Your Hat. What's Your Hurry?
The Itinerants are the brainchild of Eric Parker and Pat Robinson, originally formed to record some of Robinson's songs along with collaborations with other musicians. Here’s Your Hat, What’s Your Hurry? is a tour-de-force of Celtic-influenced rock with more than a hint of blues and R&B. "We love all kinds of music," says Parker. It shows. The band's self-described style is "equal parts Pogues and Allman Brothers but with a ton of Asbury Park (NJ) thrown in."
