Join us in welcoming Charlie Parr back to the Saint Croix Valley! Charlie is an incorruptible outsider who writes novelistic, multi-layered stories that shine a kaleidoscopic light on defiant, unseen characters thriving in the shadows all around us. Parr has a new record with only his name on it, and it isn’t shiny and perfect and commercial and catchy. It’s him. It’s pure Charlie Parr and that’s enough. He hasn’t moved to LA or Nashville; he’s stayed in the cold grey north of Minnesota, because that’s his home.
All ages event. Limited tickets available, advanced registration required.
25% of ticket sales will help fund the NHAC scholarship, which allows us to waive workshop or material fees for those who demonstrate financial need.
