A shy individual, Charlie Parr plays original and traditional folk and Piedmont-style blues, accompanying himself on National resonator guitars, 12-string guitar and sometimes a banjo. He was raised in Austin, Minnesota, in a household that prized traditional American folk music. His style bears the influence of hours spent listening to country blues records and Smithsonian/Folkways field recordings; often in the garage.
Recorded at the 2011 Pickathon Music Festival.
