The four members of 19-Twenty stand on a stage with a packed audience behind them. The crowed is cheering and excited.


With dazzling melodic fingerpicking on six and twelve string guitars, and a lifetime of stories and songs gathered on the world’s musical highways, it’s no surprise that Nick Charles has long been labelled internationally as “Australia’s virtuoso of acoustic roots and blues”. During his extensive and acclaimed career, Nick has released sixteen albums on major Australian and US roots music labels, recordings that have garnered world-wide recognition beginning with My Place and now his most recent release Guitar Music. The music encompasses a delightful, eclectic mix of acoustic roots, including blues, folk, country, and early ragtime jazz. Along the way there are stylish nods to the “Great American Songbook” and the finest contemporary players and composers.
