Nick Charles – “Australia’s virtuoso of acoustic blues and roots guitar music”

13 July @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Nick Charles guitaris

With dazzling melodic fingerpicking on six and twelve-string guitars, stinging bottleneck slide and a lifetime’s stories and songs gathered or written on the world’s musical highways it’s no surprise that Nick Charles is labelled internationally as “Australia’s virtuoso of acoustic roots and blues”.

Nick has released nearly twenty albums on major Australian and US roots music labels during his extensive and acclaimed career. His recordings have garnered worldwide recognition beginning with “My Place” and now his most recent release “Guitar Music”. This recognition has succeeded in having Nick signed to the Grammy Award-winning label, Solid Air Records USA (“Home of the World’s Finest Guitarists”). The only other Australian recognized by the label is Tommy Emmanuel.

Consistently averaging 150 shows a year in Australia, New Zealand and the USA, his music encompasses a delightful and eclectic mix of acoustic roots including blues, folk and early ragtime jazz. Along the way, there are stylish nods to the Great American Songbook and the finest contemporary players and composers from Chet Atkins to Lennon and McCartney to Leo Kottke.
