BLUES | Charlie Parr

by

comment

Charlie Parr looks and sounds like he just walked out of a time machine or, at the very least, an early-20th-century freight car. Drawing deeply from the well of American music, Parr covers blues and roots in a manner reminiscent of Lead Belly, Lightnin' Hopkins, and Woody Guthrie. He's equally adept at fingerpicking a 12-string or sliding over the frets on a steel guitar. At Abilene he'll share the bill with another strong musical personality, J.D. Wilkes.

Charlie Parr plays Saturday, March. 7, at Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 9 p.m. $10. 232-3230; abilenebarandlounge.com; charlieparr.com.
