Charlie Roth (charlierothmusic.com) is in town for one week only and will take us with him on his music journey! Charlie recently completed a tour of gigs in Ireland and brings us a special treat. From the hill country of Texas to the heather clad glens of Ireland and bonny Scotland there is a song of his home on the plains, a waltz across love, and a reflection on social change, some barstool ballads about thinkin’, drinkin’, and cheatin’. Charlie delivers stories as always plain and simple, inspired songs, inspiring playing, and inspirational singing.
Highly influenced by the storytelling of Texas songwriters and his past efforts have likened him to Jerry Jeff Walker, Guy Clark, Townes VanZant and others in that tradition. It wasn’t until he joined the Celtic band “Ring of Kerry” 3 years ago that he immersed himself in the musical traditions of the British Isles. Charlie’s last record ‘Broken Ground’ went to #6 on the Euro Americana charts and garnered him two European tours and both times it brought him to the highlands of Scotland, including traditional Celtic songs ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’ and ‘Jolly Bold Robber’.
“Story telling of the highest order, Charlie Roth is a name to remember” Ralph McLean show – BBC Northern Ireland
