The ArtsCenter
Recommended: Charlie Parr, featuring Phil Cook & the Stumpjumpers, at the ArtsCenter in Carrboro
Friday, November 18, 8 PM
A big thank you goes out to The ArtsCenter in Carrboro for helping us to book amazing live music at our Southern Accent opening party.

Head over to Carrboro this Friday to see some good southern music!

Charlie Parr, having made his way from the plains of Duluth, Minnesota, to the forests of North Carolina, has won over crowds with his rustic, resonator-fueled folk songs. His latest release, Stumpjumper, was recorded in a farm outbuilding with the aid of fellow musician Phil Cook of Megafaun and Hiss Golden Messenger, who will join Parr alongside the rest of the Stumpjumpers for a unique all-star lineup of American roots music. Tickets and more info.

Ny Times
Nasher in the News
"The show, which approaches the South as both a popular myth and a lived reality, includes outsiders to the region...But the southerners born, raised and still in residence–Douglas Bourgeois, Diego Camposeco, Michael Galinsky, Birney Imes, Jessica Ingram, George Jenne, Tameka Norris, Tom Rankin, Jim Roche, Amy Sherald, Burk Uzzle, Stacy Lynn Waddell–are the names you're likely to remember longest. Spirits of place, they'll haunt you." —Holland Cotter, The New York Times
