Day-in-the-life narratives, incredible acumen as a guitarist, and a tireless touring schedule that sees him play more than 200 shows per year have earned Charlie Parr a raucous fanbase. His observations from both his own life path and his time spent working with the less fortunate make for a rich well of stories to draw upon.
Mark your calendar for his Wednesday, July 31, performance at Miner Brewing Company. This after-hours show starts at 8:30 p.m. in the Miner Brewing Company Taproom.
Tickets for this all-ages performance are now available for just $14 in advance ($16 at the door) by calling 605.574.9635, ordering online, or stopping by the Taproom. Any remaining tickets will only be available in Taproom on July 31.
Since leaving Austin, Minn., in the 1980s to begin his musical career in Northern Minnesota, Parr has released 14 full-length albums and two live albums and been the focus of a 2013 documentary. His music has been featured in commercials and movies Down Under, and multiple tours of Australia and Europe has broadened his reach to an international audience.
Fans who have been following Charlie Parr through his previous 13 full-length albums and decades of nonstop touring already know that the Duluth-based songwriter has a way of carving a path straight to the gut. On his newest record, Dog, however, he seems to be digging deeper and hitting those nerves quicker than ever before.
“I want my son to have this when I’m gone,” Charlie sings not 10 seconds into the opening song on Dog, “Hobo.” His voice sounds weary but insistent, his accompaniment sparse and sorrowful. By the second line, the listener has no choice but to be transported on a journey through the burrows of his troubled mind, following him through shadowy twists and turns as he searches for a way out.
