David Daniels,storyteller and founder of the Reggae Theatre Ensemble is noted for his plays Malcolm X meet Peter Tosh,Kolorada...a western tale and Black Hippie Chronicles as well as spoken word/music collaborations with the reggae based Talkin Roots Crew and the experimental trio The Project

His connection with Charlie Parr goes back to when both appeared as guests on the late Jazzy J's Twin Cities Radio on the Net. From that came the first collaboration of the two,a live performance called "Adventures in Music and Storytelling" back in 2010

Charlie Parr’s website describes the country blues and folk songwriter as “an easily confused and very shy individual” who hit the road in the 1980s in search of fellow Minnesota songwriter and Bob Dylan inspiration, “Spider” John Koerner (he found him, according to the short bio).

David Daniels' "Annie Jones" : Love Letter to Grandmothe & Baseball
Perhaps, the oldest human art (besides drumming & dance) is storytelling: the conduit for memory& history--personal & tribal--humor & wisdom. All of this is captured in the storytelling form employed by DAVID DANIELS who sojourns between Denver, CO and Minneapolis,.MN--backed up by DULUTH, MN acoustic blues man CHARLIE PARR. . Part of what makes Daniels stories unique is that he roots his personal sagas--whether of an early 1970s cross-c9untry road-trip or other trips of consciousness---personal stories are rooted in historical events. Deftly weaving historical observations about Jim Crow racial segregation before he was born, Daniels relates the challenges of his "crippled" grandmother "Annie Jones", the love story of her marriage and the tough love she showed her three grandsons---a love that included a shared obsession with what used to be known as "America's Great past-time": baseball. Many of Daniels' stories re-create 1960s time of both innocence and insurrection , with the private lives looming large amidst "big events". Charlie Parr's playing is meditative: a quiet ringing bell calling up the past with a purity of tone. "Annie Jones" does what great stories: paints a character so vivid we know her--or wish we did. This is part of a series of collaborations David Daniels is dong with musicians called "Adventures in Storytelling and Music": one hopes that Daniels and Parr (or other musicians" will be recorded soon. This is the sort of Americana connective tissue, we desperately need in this divisive time.
