An easily confused and very shy individual, Charlie Parr has been traveling around singing his songs ever since leaving Austin Minnesota in the 1980’s in search of Spider John Koerner, whom he found about 100 miles north at the Viking Bar one Sunday night. The experience changed his life, made him more or less unemployable, and brings us to now: 13 recordings, 250 shows a year or more, 200,000 miles on a well broke in Kia, and a nasty fear of heights. Resonator fueled folk songs from Duluth Minnesota.
“Charlie Parr‘s latest album, Stumpjumper, is a hot one. As usual he draws from the well of human suffering, but does so with humor and just a dash of folk tale mystery. Parr benefits from the additional band members, who offer percussive accents to his mesmerizing resonator and 12-string blues style picking.” — American Standard Time
