To Top Of Page
Champagne Charlie, whose mastery of American blues and folk tunes from the '20s, '30s and '40s would make them one of the States' top roots bands if they weren't from the Netherlands.
The Bluegrass Special
An excellent Dutch stringband. They authentically revive the music of the period.
The Roosevelt CD by Champagne Charlie is a very impressive production with excellent booklet notes. Good playing, good groove, and good singing, with no trace of a foreign accent. This is a useful research tool as well as a very pleasant listen and read.
Dr. Dave Evans
Who says the blues is strictly an American invention? These Dutch fellows in Champagne Charlie swing and moan with the best Delta folks!
