Charlie Parr

Doors 4:00pm, Music 8:00pm

Abilene Bar & Lounge and The Bop Shop present CHARLIE PARR!

An easily confused and very shy individual, Charlie Parr has been traveling around singing his songs ever since leaving Austin, Minnesota in the 1980's in search of Spider John Koerner, whom he found about 100 miles north at the Viking Bar one Sunday night. The experience changed his life, made him more or less unemployable, and brings us to now: 13 recordings, 250 shows a year or more, 200,000 miles on a well broke in Kia, and a nasty fear of heights. Resonator fueled folk songs from Duluth, Minnesota.

Tickets $12 advance, $15 day of show, on sale now at Abilene, House of Guitars, The Bop Shop, Record Archive and online at
