Event description

Description

Canadian singer-songwriter-guitarist Charlie A’Court is the proverbial force to be reckoned with. Planted at the crossroads of roots and soul, Charlie’s mighty voice, fierce guitar work and contemporary songwriting have earned him an international following and a host of awards and accolades.

Born with the gift of voice, Charlie A’Court grew up in rural Nova Scotia, Canada, where he spent his youth learning to play guitar while immersed in his father’s vinyl record collection – discovering singers like Otis Redding and Sam Cooke. “I remember being so profoundly moved and almost not old enough to know why” says A’Court. "There was something honest about the way they sang. They would sing with such conviction that simply commanded attention.”

It wasn’t long before he discovered albums featuring blistering blues guitar. B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Albert Collins and Albert King made their way to the top of the pile and to the ears of a young, imaginative A’Court. “These guys would wail in a way where every note mattered. They sang without apology and played guitar like it was their last day” recalls A’Court, “and then there was Eric Clapton. He really opened my mind as a musician. Clapton’s music showed me that my music could balance between blues and adult contemporary songwriting.” Over the years, A’Court’s influences grew to include contemporary artists such as Jonny Lang, Colin James, John Mayer and Joe Bonamassa.

Arguably most revered for his dynamic, engaging live performance, Charlie A’Court tours non-stop throughout Canada and his adopted second home of Australia, with occasional forays to the USA, UK and Europe. He’s enjoyed headline performances at Stan Rogers Folk Festival (CAN), Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival (CAN), Great Southern Blues Festival (AUS), Woodford Folk Festival (AUS), repeat performances at Kerrville Folk Festival (USA) and has shared the stage with James Cotton, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, George Thorogood, Harry Manx, Martin Sexton, Delbert McClinton, Colin James, Dan Aykroyd and Jimmie Vaughan, among many others.

Accustomed to somewhat larger stages, don't miss this rare opportunity to catch Charlie in our intimate venue.
