Charlie Parr: Turning Blue

Minnesota native Charlie Parr is bringing his blues-tinged Americana to New York’s Hill Country on Sept. 15. If you’ve never had the pleasure of hearing Parr’s picked and crooned songs of railroads and regret, the man’s a folk poet in a long tradition of names no one knows but recognizes immediately upon hearing. He taps into that side of American culture, roots around in there and comes out of it covered in dirt and smiling. His songs are like lost hymns. Hill Country is on 26th St. in Manhattan, and the show starts at 8:30 p.m. with The Grand Central opening. No cover.
