UK Country Music legend Charlie Landsborough plans to retire from touring to concentrate on writing and recording music. Before his retirement Charlie is currently on an extended tour of Britain.
Known as the UK's premier country music singer, country music is only one part of his live shows. Charlie's gigs are a night of beautiful ballads, folk, blues, country, rock 'n' roll, pop, gospel and anthems.
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.
Charlie said: "I intend to hang up my guitar and retire. Hence, this tour around England in spring 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."
The remaining tour dates can be found in this month’s Gig & Event Guide.
NFN Editor writes: I’ll never forget the first time saw Charlie in concert. It was in the Barbican Theatre, York, but felt like he was playing in your front room. You could almost touch the love and warmth that emanated from the stage through his songs. I’ve been a fan ever since, and have been privileged to be able to play some of his songs on BBC Radio Humberside over the years. Thank you Charlie. God Bless.
