What the Church of Cash has that no one else can match is their loyalty to the song and the message that Johnny left to all of us. The band merely keeps this word alive with a youthful spirit that has entertained audiences completely.

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.

**************************
Tapers notes: This is the last set from Muskie Days 2022, and Charlie Parr seemed the appropriate musician to close out the weekend. Great setlist, and as usual, Charlie knocks it out of the park.

**************************
Tapers notes: Show started around 11pm and went until about 1:30 am or so, so the date listed is the start date. This was probably one of my favorite shows of the summer, just a really great performance by the band. Even further, this was probably my favorite weekend of the summer, just a great sense of community at this event, and some helpful people who let us crash at their house when our original plans fell through.

**************************
Tapers notes: This was a music festival that went Friday-Sunday, and I knew for certain I would arrive by the time Corey Medina & Brothers went on at 11pm, but because of the drive (3 hrs or so), I wasn't sure if I'd make it to the beginning of this set (started at 9pm). I may have broke a few laws trying to get there by 9, but it wasn't to be and I missed the first 15 minutes or so. You'll hear some audio imperfections for the first minute or so of the recording as I was setting up, but after that it's a clear recording. After each set the MC made some announcements and some "bad jokes", so I have included those as an outro as a separate track.
