Ticket Information:

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 has long been labelled internationally as “Australia’s virtuoso of acoustic roots and blues”.

During his extensive and acclaimed career, Nick has released sixteen albums on major Australian and US roots music labels. His recordings have garnered worldwide recognition beginning with “My Place” and now his most recent release “The River Flows”.

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 recognised by the label being Tommy Emmanuel.

He has toured with and supported artists including John Hammond, Guy Clarke, Ralph McTell, Robyn Ford, Junior Wells, Taj Mahal and BB King and toured the US ten times in recent years.

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, country 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.

Nick will be supported by the well known Tauranga blues man Mike Garner.
Heavily influenced by the old‐time Mississippi Delta sound, Chicago electric boogie and country‐fried roots, Mike has toured internationally with successful jaunts to Australia, Japan, Europe, the US, and even ventured to Kathmandu, Nepal, for the Himalayan Blues Festival.

He has achieved some impressive accolades in his extensive career, including third place in the Nashville International Songwriting Competition.
