Town Mountain, Charlie Parr 

When: Fri., Dec. 13, 10 p.m. 2013
Price: $12-15
Though singer-songwriter Charlie Parr is a multi-instrumentalist and a consistent collaborator, his best work comes when he's alone, crowded behind an aged National resonator guitar so that his beard forms a drape at the top of its body. From that position, Parr emerges as one of the most wonderful players and voices in the folk music landscape. His touch on the strings is incandescent but anxious, the blues delivered with astonishing grace. And his voice is one of wisdom, with a just-perceptible air of hard-won, gruff insight. Parr is a pool of old American standards, but his originals are reliquaries of images and memories, where worry for the future is braced by the steady lead of a master storyteller. Asheville bluegrass normalizers Town Mountain open. Don't let that prevent you from seeing one of the land's absolute best Americana advancers. —Grayson Haver Currin
