Barde aus London

Really, it would take no less than Billy Bragg to silence the rabbits. Although agreeing provisionally to play, Billy has decided to treat himself to some time under a parasol on Croatia’s Adriatic Coast… Our sadness was short-lived, however. Coincidentally, this young English singer/songwriter was recommended to us by the same agency as a replacement. This was a happy coincidence for us as the up-and-coming singer from London has managed to completely win us over with his wonderful songs and virtuosic guitar accompaniment. In addition to his over 4.5 million plays (!) on Spotify, his online performances are also extremely popular. No wonder, as his deeply honest and humble songs exude an authenticity that only great artists are capable of displaying. Charlie comes from a London suburb and was initially reluctant to play in public as he was dissatisfied with his guitar playing. A two-year stay in the Spanish city of Seville gave him a new approach to his instrument. He accompanies his songs with his guitar by using percussive elements from flamenco. This allows him to create delicate, intricate twists, which create expansive, yet completely intimate moments. All he needs is his guitar and his voice.
