Folk star will take you on a jour­ney of mu­sic and life

Rutherglen Reformer - - THE TICKET -

Folk mu­si­cian Char­lie Lands­bor­ough is set to take to the road again this Au­tumn as he stops off in La­nark­shire.

The well-known coun­try singer-song­writer will take to the stage at the Mother­well Con­cert Hall as he is ac­com­pa­nied by his own four strong band.

He will travel to sev­eral lo­ca­tions across the UK in Oc­to­ber and Novem­ber for his first tour in Bri­tain this year.

Lands­bor­ough is al­ready pop­u­lar amongst fans of coun­try mu­sic, but on this tour he will mix in some up-tempo rock to show he is more than adept at other gen­res.

Char­lie’s own history gives a clue to his ac­com­plish­ments.

His songs are drawn from per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ence – grow­ing up in Birken­head in a large but poor fam­ily, join­ing the army, teach­ing at schools, play­ing mu­sic in the evenings.

It wasn’t un­til he hit 50 that he had his first big hit – What Colour Is The Wind – a song writ­ten round a ques­tion from a small blind child , the phrase over­heard and given to him by singer/song­writer Pete Naden.

Since then Char­lie has trav­elled the globe, and dur­ing the gig in Mother­well he will be able to throw in the added bonus of the sto­ries he tells and you need look no fur­ther for an evening that’s hugely en­joy­able, pro­foundly mu­si­cal and ex­tremely good value for money.

Tick­ets for the show at the Mother­well Con­cert Hall on Oc­to­ber 23 will be priced be­tween £16.60 and £28.
