Location: Miner Brewing Company
Day-in-the-life narratives, incredible acumen as a guitarist, and a tireless touring schedule that sees him play more than 200 shows per year have earned Charlie Parr a raucous fan base. His observations from both his own life path and his time spent working with the less fortunate make for a rich well of stories to draw upon.
Since leaving Austin, Minn., in the 1980s to begin his musical career in Northern Minnesota, Parr has released 14 full-length albums and two live albums and been featured in a documentary. His music has been featured in commercials and movies Down Under, and multiple tours of Australia and Europe has broadened his reach to an international audience.
His latest album, Dog, was released by Red House Records this August. Inspired by a lifelong battle with depression, the album takes listeners on a journey through a troubled mind, following Parr through the shadowy twists and turns of his own troubled mind. Despite its gut-wrenching backstory, Dog sees Parr emerge more optimistic and defiant in the face of mental illness as he comes to accept that life is full of both the inexplicable and the unknowable.
Opening band Them Coulee Boys hail from Eau Claire, Wisc., and have spent the last four years building a following throughout the Midwest and beyond. Since 2016, they’ve toured alongside John Fogerty, Yonder Mountain String Band, Sam Bush, Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, and Pert Near Sandstone (whom you can catch in the Miner Brewing Company Tap Room on October 25).
