Biography

Charlie Parr is an American country blues musician, born in Austin, Minnesota, United States. He started his music career in Duluth, Minnesota. His influences include Charlie Patton, Bukka White, Reverend Gary Davis, Dave Van Ronk, and Mississippi John Hurt. He plays a National resonator guitar, a fretless open-back banjo, and a 12-string guitar often in the Piedmont blues style. He is married (to Emily Parr, who occasionally adds back vocals to Charlie's music) with two children.

As of May 2008, the song "1922" has been featured in an Australian and New Zealand Vodafone television advertisement. As a consequence Parr's album, 1922, was re-released in Australia on the Level 2 record label in Melbourne. In 2009, Parr toured Australia with Paul Kelly.

Several of Parr's songs were featured in the Australian drama film "Red Hill" released in 2010, including a full rendition of "Just Like Today" in the closing credits of the film.
