Last tour for award-winning singer songwriter Charlie Landsborough as he prepares for his Scottish dates
Charlie Landsborough may be preparing to hang up his guitar and retire, but the singer songwriter will be in Oban and Campbeltown this weekend as part of his last tour of Scotland.
Charlie started singing professionally in the 1970s, although his major success did not come until 1994 with his song, What Colour is the Wind. He is one of the UK’s top country acts and is also popular in Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.
Charlie is generally recognised as a country singer, however, as his fans will tell you, country music is only one part of his live shows and music catalogue.
Winner of Best Songwriter, Best Song, Best Male Vocalist and International Country Album, Charlie’s talent and chart-topping records received the ultimate recognition in 2011 when he was inducted into the British Country Music Hall of Fame – a wonderful achievement for any artist.
This month Charlie also released a new CD, The Attic Collection, which no doubt will prove to be as successful as those that came before.
However, Charlie has now decided to call it a day, saying: ‘Now I thought that you who have been so good to me should be the first to know that I intend to hang up my guitar and retire next year. Hence, this tour will be my last. I will certainly miss you all, but will never forget your great kindness and support, and will always treasure the wonderful memories I have of the lovely times I have had with you.’
For his last shows, Charlie plans a night of beautiful ballads, folk, blues, country, rock ‘n’ roll, pop, gospel and anthems.
While Charlie is retiring from gigging, he will be concentrating on song writing and is planning on releasing new albums in the future.
His final shows are not to be missed.
