Charlie Parr is a singular
musician. Given his refreshingly
humble nature, you'll never hear
Charlie Parr himself. But
it is simply true. A self-taught
player, student of the most earnest
folk and blues players and
traditions, and seemingly larger

Charlie Parr has a chapter reserved

history. While that chapter is far

made because of the unmistakable
substance that makes up the man and
his music. Check out this conversation
Charlie Parr had with Charlie
Pulkrabek, and the songs he recorded
in the studios of Northern Community
