Charlie Parr

Easily confused and very shy, Charlie Parr has been traveling around performing his Resonator-
fueled folk songs ever since leaving Austin, Minnesota in the 1980s in search of Spider John
Koerner–whom he found about 100 miles north at the Viking Bar. The experience changed his
life, made him more or less unemployable, and transformed him into the force of nature known
to fans today. Those who have been following Charlie Parr through his escapades of nonstop
touring already know that the Duluth-based songwriter has a way of carving a path straight to
the gut. On his newest record, Dog, he digs deeper and hits those nerves quicker than ever
before. In quieter moments, Parr confronts hard issues head-on, using only an acoustic guitar or
banjo to light the way, then ramps up to raucous, punk-tinged soundscapes that make you want
to howl at the moon.

Phil Cook

Phil Cook is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and producer based in Durham, North Carolina. He has composed music for Bon Iver, Kanye West, The Blind Boys of Alabama, and Hiss Golden Messenger, among others, as well as contributed to studio recordings for Bruce Hornsby, Amy Ray (The Indigo Girls), The Mountain Goats, Kathleen Edwards, Matthew E White and more. A founding member of Megafaun and The Shouting Matches (with Justin Vernon), he currently makes records and tours under his own name. His most recent album, "People Are My Drug", was release in 2018 via Thirty Tigers/Psychic Hotline.
