Charlie Harrigan - Singer, Guitarist

Songs and Stories from the Heart



Charlie has been out of the limelight for some time now.  However, he has recently come back to music with  renewed vigour and a new album on Medicine Hat Records - Wasted and Wounded, 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 and blues, rock and roll and other external influences.   All of which is augmented by an uncanny ability to tell a tale!








"The voice of Charlie Harrigan is one of rough silk enhanced by a gracious sentimental charm".  Liverpool Sound & Vision


"There is that quality you associate with the sounds of Dylan's early offerings".



"Messages that strike home every time".   Folk World

"Album of the Week".   Celtic Music Radio
