Charlie Parr


This show will celebrate the release of Charlie Parr's latest, Keep Your Hands on the Plow, a striking collection of mostly traditional gospel nuggets that positively glows thanks to Parr's meticulously soulful arrangements and the glorious acoustics of Duluth's Sacred Heart Church. With critical but appropriately spare help from wife Emily, Brandy Forsman and Tim Maloney of Duluth's Four Mile Portage, and Low's Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker, Parr brings well-worn, ancient standards like "Daniel in the Lion's Den" to vivid, Technicolor life while honoring each song's gritty origins. Parr's soaring, harrowing voice over the ominous thump of Parker's drum on "Poor Lazarus" could probably raise the dead, while gorgeous multi-part harmonies on "Farther Along" offer heartfelt solace. This is one of only a handful of performances tied to the new release while Parr awaits the release of his next, Barnswallow. With Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank.
Fri., Jan. 27, 8 p.m., 2012
