Nick Charles is a gifted musician who plays like an angel with dazzling melodic fingerpicking on six and twelve string guitars, plus stinging bottleneck slide.
He writes award-winning songs and sings with conviction and has technique to burn. Yet the emphasis is always on melody and feel, the music accessible and audiences are never disappointed.
Anyone who has seen him perform live over the last 25 years, or has listened to his recorded output would appreciate the extent of Nick Charles’ musical knowledge and guitar virtuosity over a wide range of roots music.
