Charlie Parr plays the Keller

Charlie Parr

Few modern musicians live roots music like Minnesota’s Charlie Parr. Parr’s heartfelt and plaintive original folk blues and traditional spirituals don’t strive for authenticity – -they are authentic.

A favourite of Australian audiences since his national tour supporting Paul Kelly, dates with You Am I and spots on festivals such as Falls, Sunset Sounds, Southbound and Wave Rock, Parr returns to Australia in support of his latest album ‘Stumpjumper’.

‘Stumpjumper’ – 10 originals and his version of the venerable murder ballad, ‘Delia’ – could be lost field recordings from another era. Switching between acoustic guitar, dobro and banjo, his blistering picking and keening and 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.
