Event Description
Charlie Parr

Charlie Parr’s new album, Barnswallow, is his eleventh studio effort, and features 10 songs–eight original and two traditional. In addition to Parr’s trademark banjo and National Reso-Phonic guitars, Barnswallow features Mikkel Beckmen on washboard, Dave Hundreiser on harmonica, and Charlie on vocals (with Emily Parr adding harmony on one track). The album was recorded live to tape at the Winona Arts Center. Charlie’s longtime collaborator Tom Herbers of Third Ear Studios in Minneapolis engineered and mastered the project and as usual the project has that same distinctive timeless feel, steeped in traditional folk and blues. Bookended by the foot-stomping opener “Jimmy Bell” and closer “Rattlesnake” as well as “Motorcycle Blues,” Charlie offers picturesque counterpoint with the pretty folk numbers “Badger” and “Jesus is a Hobo”. In all Barnswallow is vintage Parr, and will surely go down as one of his best works yet.
