Minnesotan legend Charlie Parr has announced his upcoming tour, including fifteen dates starting in Bristol on May the 4th. The series of gigs promote his most recent album, ‘Last of the Better Days Ahead‘. This, his 14th album, was released at the end of last year.

The label is home to a diverse roster of contemporary artists, such as Our Native Daughters and Kronos Quartet. Also, it preserves and releases historical recordings from artists like Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Elizabeth Cotten and more. ‘Last of the Better Days Ahead’ included singles ‘Last Of The Better Days Ahead’, ‘817 Oakland Avenue‘, and ‘Blues For Whitefish Lake, 1975‘.
