Michael Charles - Sandstone Live in Calgary, Canada


Album Description

Michael Charles musical pilgrimage began over five decades ago in his homeland Melbourne, Victoria Australia.

While enjoying a successful musical crusade of touring, recording, and numerous television and radio appearances in his homeland, Michael received an invitation from Buddy Guy’s management to appear at the infamous Legends in Chicago, Illinois USA. Graciously accepting the honour, Michael Charles travelled the twelve thousand five hundred miles and took the stage with Mr. Buddy Guy. After numerous trips back and forth, Michael Charles made the monumental and life changing decision to make America his new home. Charles worked the whole Chicago blues circuit performing with Mr. Buddy Guy, Phil Guy, James Cotton, Eddy Clearwater, Junior Wells, George Baze, as well as touring with blues legend, Jimmy Dawkins.

Through the next twenty plus years, and now a eight times Grammy elected artist, Michael Charles enjoyed being featured in numerous television and radio broadcasts and several music magazines, along with gracing countless stages and pages including Chicago Blues Fest, Philadelphia Jazz and Blues Fest, Windy City Live Television, WGN TV, JBTV, The Chicago Tribune, The Chicago Sun Times, and The College Music Journal.

As always and with all Michael Charles’ performances and recordings, his guitar is kept forefront and is the driving force behind his music.

Michael Charles is grateful to Calgary for welcoming him on every Canadian tour. He releases this live recording from the infamous Blues Can, paying homage to Calgary through “Sandstone”.
