Charlie Parr / Danny Pound & Dave Swenson

Replay Lounge

When it comes to the Delta blues, it's easy to get lost in a retroist mindset that overwhelms the immediate power of blues music in the present. Minneapolis-based songster Charlie Parr could well have been plucked out of a Harry Smith Anthology, but his songs are his own. He accompanies himself with National resonator guitars, 12-string guitars and gut-string banjos, informed by the stylings of influential pickers like Rev. Gary Davis and Dave Van Ronk.
