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: As always, a great show from Charlie. This was the first of 3 Charlie shows I saw in the span of 8 days, so if you are a Charlie Parr fan I have a couple more recordings on the way.

I’m travelin’ light and I’m slow coming home"
