BLUES | Charlie Parr 

Whether he's fingerpicking his 12-string or sliding up and down on his steel guitar, Charlie Parr draws deeply from the roots of American music. He's got the looks and the voice of a hobo musician riding the rails in the early 20th century, but none of his style is affectation. Parr grew up in an early-20th-century way, with no television and only his dad's records, by the likes of Leadbelly, Lightnin' Hopkins, and Woody Guthrie, to keep him entertained. Now perpetually on the road, Parr keeps their legacies alive.

Charlie Parr plays Thursday, October 2, at Bop Shop Records, 1460 Monroe Avenue. 8:30 p.m. $10 requested donation.;
