Nick Charles is known internationally as “Australia’s virtuoso of acoustic roots and blues”.

He’s toured with artists including John Hammond, Guy Clarke, Ralph McTell, Robben Ford and BB King touring the US 13 times in recent years, performing over 300 shows there. He’s released 20 albums worldwide. This is dazzling fingerpicking roots magic and a lifetime’s stories and songs from the world’s musical highways. In the words of Bruce Elder from the Sydney Morning Herald “he plays guitar like an angel!”
Mike Rudd, George Butrumlis & Jeremy Alsop
I had a dream - and the dream was this acual trio, with piano accordion meister George Butrumlis and ace bassist Jeremy Alsop brilliantly transforming the repertoire from Rudd's Ancient & Modern hymnal into sublime reality. If the reaction to the trio at Spectrum to Ariel's re-Visionary concert is anything to go by, there's an audience out there for exactly this kind of sophisticated acoustically inclined fare. George's lyrical playing and instinctively appropriate vocal harmonising combined with Jeremy's knowing, but always tasteful double bass, flesh out the Cruddy guitar and vocal musical palette and enliven my occasionally quirky songs culled from pre-history, last century, yesterday and beyond..
Anna Scionti is a Melbourne-based singer-songwriter, guitarist and bottleneck slide player who mixes it up on cigar box guitar, resonator, lap steel and six-string guitar.
The music Scionti makes is her own style steeped in blues, roots and rock. While absorbing influences from her favourite inspirational artists, Scionti walks her own creative path. Driving guitars and honey-soaked, gravel-infused vocals draw you deep in to her world of emotionally charged, electrified rhythmic tunes.
Scionti’s 2020 album JUNKBOX RACKET marks the follow up to ‘Orphan Diary’ - nominee for ‘Best Blues Album’ at the 2019 Music Victoria Awards.
