Champagne Charlie

a roots & bluesband from the Dutch delta (Zeeland), started in 1988.

Unlike many bluesbands, they focus on the real blues roots.
Their musical inspiration originates from the early bluesmasters from the 20's to the 50's. (Blind Blake, Mississippi John Hurt, Bo Carter, Robert Johnson to name a few.)

They started writing their own songs in that same tradition and produced 11 CD's, part Dutch, part English.
They have been a favourite at many blues and jazz festivals because of their unique sound (with many acoustic stringed instruments) and enthusiastic, passionate performances.

Some of their highlights :
In 2002 they performed at the Northsea Jazzfestival in The Hague.

In 2008 Champagne Charlie made their 10th album "Waiting on Roosevelt", commissioned by the Roosevelt Study Center and the Roosevelt Foundation.
