Nick Charles & Phil ManningPresented by Burrinja Blues and Roots
Two of Australia's Blues greats have combined forces for the final Burrinja Blues and Roots of 2014. It is set to be one very special night and a celebration of the live of the late Alex Legg.
“Nick Charles is a class act revered by peers and critics as one of the finest pickers and players in the land. Various guitars and mandolins become one with the player as he caresses the great blues classics from the strings. With his great knowledge and a rich repertoire Nick truly is following the tradition of the best of the traveling troubadours. The great picture here tells the story of a dedicated musician. Make sure you catch him playing and get his fabulous music on disc. It is simply fabulous and so is our Maton Artist of The Year 2014. Congratulations Nick Charles.” Jamie McKew – Festival Director
