Nick Charles is launching his ninth solo album, Guitar Music. The Age has labelled him “Australia’s virtuoso of acoustic roots and blues”, gathering every blues, folk and songwriting award this country has to offer. These include Port Fairy Folk Festival Artist of the Year, The Age Blues Album of the Year, twice winner of the Australian Song Contest and every Australian blues award multiple times.
His music draws on the rich history of fingerstyle blues, ragtime and early jazz, with an instinctive eclectic melodic sense and he has toured the USA 13 times in recent years, performing more than 300 shows there.
The Weeping Willows
They will open the show and are 2021 CMAA ‘Golden Guitar’ award winners and are launching their brand new EP. Willows Andrew Wrigglesworth and Laura Coates are a couple of old souls, steeped in Bluegrass tradition and draped in Gothic Americana imagery. They regale their audiences with stories of sunshine and romance, God and The Devil, murder and decay and their performances always delight.
