Charlie had been out of the limelight for some time, however he has recently come back to music with renewed vigour subsequent to major heart surgery. His first album in almost twenty years, on Medicine Hat Records - Wasted and Wounded, was received to much acclaim.
Described as enigmatic and authentic with a 21st century glint in his eye!
Whilst Charlie was described some years ago by the Belfast Telegraph as "a sort of Tom Paxton, Luke Kelly and Billy Connolly rolled into one", today his engaging laid back style and eclectic material may well be best classified as Americana - an amalgam of folk music formed by the confluence of the shared and varied traditions and sounds that are merged from folk, country, blues, rhythm & blues, rock & roll, and other external influences, all of which is augmented by an uncanny ability to tell a tale!
