Charlie Parr On Centerstage Minnesota - Charlie Parr is a singular musician. Given his refreshingly humble nature, you'll never hear that from Charlie Parr himself. But it is simply true.

Check out this conversation Charlie Parr had with Charlie Pulkrabek, and the songs he recorded in the studios of Northern Community Radio.
