He has recorded with the likes of Sam Bush, Michael Bland, Bruce McCabe, and many others. His latest CD, “Broken Ground” has garnered him much praise among his contemporaries and air play across the USA Canada and now Europe with a No 6 spot in Novembers Euro Americana Chart as voted for by the freeform broadcasters.
A prolific songwriter in his own right, Charlie has also been a great interpreter of other writer’s’ work, while putting his unique stamp on everything he sings and plays. He was highly influenced as a young man by the great wordsmiths and the storytellers of the day. You can hear in his original works shades of fellow Minnesotan Bob Dylan, as well as John Prine, Townes Van Zandt, Leon Redbone, David Bromberg, Jesse Winchester, Greg Brown, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Waylon Jennings, to name a few. Today Charlie has found his own voice. He continues to grow as an artist, finding inspiration, constantly working at his craft, and influencing and being influenced by his contemporaries, here he is in relaxed company with me Rob Ellen, and the Highland audience at Strathpeffer Coffee Shop Sessions,and Ullapool on The Loch Broom FM Medicine Show.
