READ IT ON­LINE FIRST SINGER- song­writer Char­lie Scott won the peo­ple’s choice award at the Lancelin Buskers Fes­ti­val last month.

The fes­ti­val in­cluded more than 28 acts and Scott came sec­ond over­all, with judges de­scrib­ing his per­for­mance as “en­ter­tain­ing and en­joy­able”.

Scott made his de­but as one of WA’s new­est solo acous­tic mu­si­cians at the 2016 fes­ti­val, where he over­came his doubts and fears of per­form­ing in front of oth­ers.

He has gone on to play ev­ery week­end since then at markets, clubs, char­ity events and back­yard par­ties.

The mu­si­cian started with five songs last year and has gone on to de­velop more than 50, with more than 200 hours of per­for­mance this year.

His re­cent ex­pe­ri­ences have in­cluded play­ing a brew­ery in the Swan Val­ley, a tav­ern in the Hills and sev­eral farm­ers and grow­ers markets through­out WA.

Scott hails from the foothills of the Dar­ling Ranges and picked up the gui­tar only seven years ago.

Char­lie Scott: sec­ond in the Lancelin Buskers Fes­ti­val and won the peo­ple’s choice award.
