Maritime bluesmen team up in Banff to perform acoustic concert

Two of the hottest young East Coast talents team up for a night of great acoustic roots and blues, when Charlie A’Court and Matt Anderson perform Saturday, Jan. 27, at the Banff Centre’s Margaret Greenham Theatre.

A’Court and Andersen are touring the west and will meet up in Banff to share the stage, each performing a solo set before teaming up for several duets.

Nova Scotia’s Charlie A’Court began playing the guitar at 12 and by 14 was studying classical guitar. At 17, A’Court began playing in bars with his father as the A’Court Mountain Boys. He’s released three CD’s, has opened for the likes of Colin James, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, and George Thorogood, and toured Europe with Procol Harum. A’Court has also won 2nd place in the acoustic division of the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN (2003), won an ECMA for Best Blues Artist (2006) and is nominated in 2007 for the FACTOR Recording of the Year, Male Solo Recording of the Year and Pop Recording of the Year.

Matt Andersen began his music career in early 2002 with the local band Flat Top in New Brunswick, and shortly thereafter set out on his solo career. He made a large impact at the 2004 East Coast Music Awards (ECMA’s) industry showcases, kicking off an ever widening career of festival and concert performances. He has released two CD’s under his own name, and was nominated for the 2005 Best Blues Recording.
