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 for his five solo albums to date, including his latest offering, Come On Over, winner of the 2015 East Coast Music Award for Blues Recording of The Year.
Arguably most revered for his dynamic, engaging live performance, Charlie A’Court tours non-stop throughout his native 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.
“A'Court slides into his role as smooth soul man with ease…Singing high and mighty, rising into falsetto, getting into the groove, or slaying us with tenderness, he's a singing tour-de-force.” Bob Mersereau, CBC
