Charlie Parr:

Many people play roots music, but few modern musicians live those roots like Minnesota’s Charlie Parr. Recording since the earliest days of the 21st century, Parr’s heartfelt and plaintive original folk blues and traditional spirituals don’t strive for authenticity: They are authentic.

It’s the music of a self-taught guitarist and banjo player who grew up without a TV but with his dad’s recordings of America’s musical founding fathers, including Charley Patton and Lightnin’ Hopkins, Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly. With his long scraggly hair, father-time beard, thrift-store workingman’s flannel and jeans, and emphatic, throaty voice, Parr looks and sounds like he would have fit right into Harry Smith’s “Anthology of American Folk Music.”

Ryan Petrillo (of The Bailey Hounds):

Ryan Petrillo fronts The Bailey Hounds, a Philadelphia-based band well-versed in the arts of resurrection & possession. In 2013, they released ‘All The Blood In The World,’ a gem of folk-rock and twangy Americana music. Also, all of the blood in the world is a scary thought.


Snagwing, a relatively new group from Philly, making some great acoustic music.
