AN EVENING WITH CHARLIE LANDSBOROUGHMusic
22 October 20:00 - 23:00
Charlie is generally recognised and categorised as a country singer, however, as his regular supporters will tell you, country music actually only accounts for a very small part of his concert repertoire and music catalogue in general.
It is of course understandable that Charlie has been labelled as a country singer, as he has won just about every award possible in the UK country scene. A list of awards too numerous to mention in full, he has won Best Songwriter, Best Song, Best Male Vocalist, Best Album and International Country Album of the year. He has also received a nomination as Best Global Country Artist in the Country Music Association Awards in Nashville. Many of his albums have topped the country charts as well as getting the British pop charts. His talent and ability received the ultimate recognition when he was inducted into the British Country Music Hall of Fame in 2011.
Charlie is a performer who is difficult to categorise, as he covers many areas of the musical landscape from beautiful ballads, to folk, blues, country, rock 'n' roll, pop, gospel and anthem. Anyone who has listened to Charlie's music would agree that he shows a depth of compassion and understanding which seems almost incongruous to his simplistic yet captivating style.
Charlie is a true and immensely talented star, he is a well proven writer of fabulous songs, and is well known and well loved for his wonderful voice, but it is in his ability to tell a fine tale that we find a hidden gem. It is with this talent for spinning the yarn that we see him venturing into the realm of comedy, offering a fine compliment to the music and giving the concerts a real sense of intimacy.
