________________________________________________________________

Charlie Parr's blistering picking - he switches between acoustic guitar, dobro and banjo - and keen, cut-through-the-crowd-vocals resonate with a conviction that runs deep and true. It's the music of a self-taught guitarist and banjo player who grew up listening
to his dad's recordings of America's musical founding fathers, including Charley Patton and Lightnin' Hopkins, Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly. His heartfelt and plaintive original folk blues and traditional spirituals don't strive for authenticity, they are authentic.

Parr's inspiration is drawn from the alternately fertile and frozen soil of Minnesota. His songs exude a Midwestern sensibility and humility. Parr grew up in the Hormel meatpacking city of Austin, MN and the combination of growing up with both of his parents working proud union jobs in an industrial meat factory and his largely rural
environment  had a broad impact on him. Most of his recordings to date have eschewed typical studio settings  he has recorded in warehouses, garages, basements and storefronts, usually on vintage equipment, which gives his work the historic feel of field recordings. It's not because he wants to sound like he was discovered 75 years ago by Alan Lomax, its because most modern recording studios make the reticent and self-effacing Parr feel uncomfortable. Hes the Everyman voice for the working class, knitting together picking techniques and styles in a way thats both unique and accessible.
