Event Description

Michael Charles musical pilgrimage started over five decades ago in his birth place Melbourne, Australia. While enjoying a successful musical crusade of touring, recording, and numerous television and radio appear-ances in his homeland, Michael received an invitation from Buddy Guy’s management to appear at the infa-mous Legends in Chicago, Illinois USA. Graciously accepting the honor, Michael Charles traveled the twelve thousand five hundred miles and took the stage with Mr. Buddy Guy. After numerous trips back and forth, Mi-chael Charles made the monumental and life changing decision to make America his home. Charles worked the whole Chicago blues circuit performing with Mr. Buddy Guy, Phil Guy, James Cotton, Eddy Clearwater, Junior Wells, George Baze, as well as touring with blues legend, Jimmy Dawkins.
Through the next twenty years, and now an eight times Grammy elected artist, Michael Charles enjoyed being featured in numerous television and radio broadcasts and several music magazines, along with gracing count-less stages and pages including Chicago Blues Fest, Philadelphia Jazz and Blues Fest, Windy City Live Tele-vision, WGN TV, JBTV, The Chicago Tribune, The Chicago Sun Times, and The College Music Journal. In October of 2015 Michael Charles received the extreme honor of an induction into the Blues Hall of Fame. Mi-chael has received endorsements from Vertex and LR Baggs and in Canada from Godin / Seagull Guitars. Mi-chael Charles’ discography is comprised of thirty-two releases including a double CD thirty year anthology re-leased in 2014 and the live CD “Concert at the Nest”, released in the winter of 2015. In 2016 Australian film producer started work on a documentary chronicling the musical career of Michael Charles. The DVD will be released in 2017.
At this time Michael Charles is traveling his tenth consecutive tour in 2017, the All I Really Know Tour, which will once again take him to the far corners of the USA, Canada, and Australia. The 2017 Tour promises a multi-tude of concerts and publicity appearances as MC performs a whole new list of cities, festivals, and nightspots and revisits some favorite venues from the last nine annual tours.
