This Week’s Tent Show Radio: Cloud Cult and Charlie Parr

Check out Mike (Twitter: @SneezingCow) hosting Tent Show Radio (Twitter: @tentshowradio). This week on Tent Show Radio, enjoy the distinctive artistry of Minnesota songwriters and musicians Cloud Cult (Twitter: @CloudCult) and Charlie Parr (Twitter: @theCharlieParr).

Known for incorporating live painting into their performances, Cloud Cult’s experimental style, philosophical lyrics, and alternative-orchestral-folk-rock sound has been lauded by critics and has garnered a dedicated following.

With a sound deeply tied to the blues and folk traditions of an earlier era, Charlie Parr’s boundary-pushing roots music showcases novelistic, multi-layered stories that shine a kaleidoscopic light on defiant, unseen characters living in the shadows around us.

This episode of Tent Show Radio features recordings from Cloud Cult’s 2015 performance and Charlie Parr’s 2018 performance under the Big Top tent. Don’t miss these two acts live at Big Top Chautauqua September 17! Tickets are on sale now at

Michael Perry shares his humor and stories throughout as you enjoy another great musical experience on the Big Top stage (Twitter: @BigBlueTent). If you prefer to watch this and previous episodes, follow this link for all the available viewing options.
