Music by Charlie Parr

  • Sleepy Creek Vineyards 8254 E 1425 North Rd Fairmount, IL, 61841 United States (map)

Charlie Parr finally returns to our stage at Sleepy Creek. Many people play roots music, but few modern musicians live those roots like Minnesota's Charlie Parr. Recording since the earliest days of the 21st century, Parr's heartfelt and plaintive original folk blues and traditional spirituals don't strive for authenticity: They are authentic. As a boy, he was influenced by America's musical founding fathers, including Charley Patton and Lightnin' Hopkins, Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly. As an adult, he looks and sounds like he is a founding father himself. His inspiration is drawn from the frozen soil of Minnesota where he grew up and still lives. Find out more about Charlie at:
