Charlie Parr

When: Wed., Nov. 9, 8:30 p.m. 2016

On Charlie Parr’s website, the musician is described as “an easily confused and very shy individual.” You wouldn’t know it by listening to his 2015 album Stumpjumper. On the record’s 11 songs, the self-taught player picks at lightning speed, alternating among resonator guitar, dobro and banjo, while unabashedly belting out his heartfelt, rootsy numbers. Known to play 250 shows a year, the troubadour takes inspiration from the likes of Lightnin’ Hopkins, Woody Guthrie and Lead Belly in songs that the Missoula Independent describe as “just plain haunting.” The Minnesota native serves up original folk, blues and spirituals at ArtsRiot in Burlington.

Price: $12.
