If you go down to the crossroads of roots and soul, you’ll find a man who walks a path of inspiration and influence. A man whose honest purpose is to connect people, one emotion at a time. You’ll find Charlie A’Court.
As a boy growing up in the country village of MacCallum Settlement (outside of Truro, Nova Scotia), Charlie A’Court had little to rely on for entertainment except his imagination and music. Spending hours everyday delving into his father’s collection of vinyl, Charlie would lose himself in a world of blues, roots, soul and folk. “I was discovering singers like Otis Redding and Sam Cooke and I remember being so profoundly moved and almost not old enough to know why,” says Charlie. “There was something honest about the way they sang. They would sing with such conviction that simply commanded attention.”
Fearlessly bridging genres and challenging stylistic conventions, his music and passionate voice stir up the listeners’ emotions, touching the very core of audiences around the world. A’Court has toured extensively throughout Canada and abroad with headlining performances at the Stan Rogers’ Folk Fest, Harvest Jazz & Blues Festival, Kerrville Folk Fest (USA), and Woodford Folk Fest (AUS). A’Court has shared the stage with other high profile artists including James Cotton, Martin Sexton, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, George Thorogood, Harry Manx, Procol Harum, Colin James, Dan Aykroyd and Delbert McClinton.
