- Charlie Parr of Duluth, Minnesota plays original and traditional folk
and Piedmont-style blues, accompanying himself on National resonator
guitars, 12-string guitar and banjo.
Parr was raised in Austin, Minn, in a household that prized traditional
American folk music and his style bears the influence of hours spent
listening to country blues records and Smithsonian/Folkways field
Charlie has performed publicly since 1988 and he has shared stages and
opened concerts for Haley Bonar, The Black-Eyed Snakes, Baby Grant
Johnson, Dan Rumsey, Paul Metsa, Dakota Dave Hull, Cam Waters, Bob
Brozman, Catfish Keith and Greg Brown.
