Those who have seen him perform live over the past 30 years or so, listened to his recordings or read his excellent Rhythms column will be well aware of Nick Charles’s considerable prowess as an acoustic guitar finger-picker and his expertise over a wide range of roots music.

The Victorian’s penchant for producing engaging and eclectic albums that encompass folk, blues and beyond is endorsed by Guitar Music, in which eight of his own compositions are scattered among immaculately delivered covers of Davey Graham’s well- thumbed solo study “Anji”, Duane Allman’s “Little Martha”, Mississippi John Hurt’s “Monday Morning Blues”, John Fahey’s “Last Steam Engine Train” and the Farina Brother’s standard “Sleepwalk”.

Vocally, Charles excels on a lovely song co-written by his sister that chronicles their mother’s journey “from sadness to happiness”.
