Charlie Parr headlining at Nevis Sites & Bites this Sunday

Body: 

Nevis’ first-ever Sites & Bites, showcasing the village’s dining, arts and entertainment, will debut Sunday, June 12.

The event runs from 1 to 5 p.m., with local eateries offering samples of their fare. Artists will display their works.

Iconic folk singer Charlie Parr will entertain at 4 p.m.

On his 13th album and Red House Records debut, "Stumpjumper," Charlie showcases his blistering finger-picking as he switches between acoustic guitar, dobro and banjo.

Parr’s inspiration is drawn from the alternately fertile and frozen soil of Minnesota; his songs exude a Midwestern sensibility and humility. Parr

 grew up in the Hormel meat-packing city of Austin.

Local musicians can sign up to perform open mic style at Nevis Sites & Bites by contacting Brian Skinness at Terrapin Station (652-3091).

Admission is a $3 passport or free with the donation of three food shelf items. Proceeds go to the Akeley/Nevis food shelf.

Passports can be stamped at each of the establishments. Once filled, it can be entered in a drawing for gift certificates.
