Charlie Landsborough at the Batemans Bay Soldiers Club
From Nashville neon to rolling Celtic green, Charlie Landsborough's take on country music sweeps his audience off their feet. Not an empty seat in the house-and with good reason. Beautiful ballads are definitely the favourites, but when the band cranked it up-Yee-ha! Ride 'em cowboy, with a thigh-slappin', foot stompin' compulsive clap-along numbers that galloped on apace, giving us virtuoso accordion, guitar, bass and keyboard performances. He has a slick show, polished to perfection from the outset-all directed with an unexpected theatrical flair. Landsborough cuts a dramatic figure, but more striking is his extraordinary ability to tell a good story, both in his songs, and in his gently humorous, familiar banter between each number. And his gift has depth, because he knows first-hand about life's struggles. A great show not to be missed!
