WAN­NEROO mu­si­cian singer-song­writer Char­lie Scott won the peo­ple’s choice award at the Lancelin Buskers Fes­ti­val on the Queens Birth­day long week­end.

The pool for the Septem­ber 23-24 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 at 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 busy brew­ery in the Swan Val­ley, a tav­ern in the Hills and sev­eral farm­ers and grow­ers mar­kets through­out the state.

Hail­ing from the foothills of the Dar­ling Ranges, Scott only picked up the gui­tar seven years ago and taught him­self as he dis­cov­ered the sounds of the old school rock­a­billy, coun­try and blues.

He will per­form at the Wan­neroo Show next month.

Peo­ple’s Choice award win­ner Char­lie Scott.
