Blues guitarist Charlie Parr plays Crawdaddy

Original folk and country blues guitarist Charlie Parr will play a date in Crawdaddy on Wednesday the 18th of February to help promote his new seventh album Roustabout.

Roustabout is a field recording in true monophonic sound recorded over a month’s time in a variety of locations including living rooms, garages, barroom basements, and empty storefronts. Tom Herbers engineered and mastered the recording using a Nagra reel-to-reel.

Special guests include Emily Parr (vocals); Dave Hundreiser (harmonica); Mikkel Beckmen (washboard and a variety of other percussive junk); Dave Simonette (vocals & guitar); and Ryan Young (fiddle). Alan Sparhawk of Low considers Parr one of the “greatest musicians” he knows.

Tickets €12 available from Ticketmaster, Road Records, City Discs, Sound Cellar and usual outlets.
