Live Music – Charlie Parr with Liz Draper
November 14 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Charlie Parr is a beloved international touring artist, with a fan base spanning the United States and as far as Ireland, England and Australia. Parr is in his element while playing on stage.
Parr first grabbed a guitar at age eight and has never had a formal music lesson. Nevertheless, Charlie Parr wows crowds with his incredible fingerpicking on his 12-string baritone resonator, acoustic guitar, and banjo.
Versatile bassist Liz Draper has performed, recorded and toured internationally with such groups as the Grammy Award-winning Okee Dokee Brothers, Soul Asylum, The Cactus Blossoms, Davina and the Vagabonds, and Dakota Dave Hull. A professional musician since age 16, Liz has performed in an astonishing array of musical genres and ensembles, from jazz and classical to folk, metal, improvisational, experimental, Balkan, and acoustic strings.
Charlie Parr reflects on his musical relationship with Draper, “Music is a super different kind of relationship, a different kind of communication ….. Liz is one of the only people that I’ve been able to enter into that relationship with and feel like it’s had nothing but a positive effect on me.”
