Parr hosted a night of American Primitive guitar at the Red Herring featuring guitarists Matt Sowell, a Philadelphia native now living in Minneapolis, and Michael Wohl from Seattle. We heard some great guitar talk and live tunes on September 20, 2016 when the trio joined us in the studio. 


Minneapolis Skyline
Adam Fleischhacker

In its third year, Trampled by Turtles’ Festival Palomino brought together a collection of beloved musicians this Saturday under the shadow of the Minneapolis Skyline. The Arcs with Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, Illinois’ multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bird, British folk rocker Jake Bugg, and acclaimed groups Elephant Revival and Frightened Rabbit were among the top-billed artists. The festival featured a wide variety of Duluth influence as well, with Erik Berry Duo and Murder of Crows, both bands featuring members of the acclaimed Duluth legends, Low. Devil’s Flying Machine, featuring Charlie Parr, also contributed to this rich collection of bluegrass, folk, americana, and rock standouts.

Homegrown Week on KUMD!
Local artist Charlie Parr released his 14th album, Stumpjumper​, during the week of the 17th annual Duluth Homegrown Music Festival. The release marks his debut on St. Paul's Red House Records and the first time he's recorded a solo project with the support of a backing band. We asked him about this career move into new territory when he joined us Live from Studio A on April 27, 2015.
