Charlie Parr Performs "Jubilee," "Daniel in the Lion's Den," "When First Unto This Country," "Jesus Met the Woman at the Well," & "Just Like Today"
The Bop Shop here in town will host him next week, local critic Jeff Spevak informs us — Parr's music evokes a bygone era. Mr. Spevak on a previous performance he saw:
- He was, in a word, amazing. In another two words, genuinely humble. In another three words, an authentic anachronism. A roots-music guy who looks like a professor of squirrel hunting. And playing the kind of National resonator guitar once favored by Son House. Almost all original songs that sounded like they were written 80 years ago.
