LAKE PLACID – Michael Charles’ All I Really Know Tour will come to Delta Blue from 9 p.m. to midnight Saturday and Sunday, June 17 and 18.

While enjoying a successful musical crusade of touring, recording, and numerous television and radio appearances in his homeland of Australia, Charles received an invitation from Buddy Guy’s management to appear at the infamous Legends in Chicago.

Charles traveled the 12,500 and took the stage with Mr. Buddy Guy. After numerous trips back and forth, Charles made the monumental and life changing decision to make America his new home. He worked the whole Chicago blues circuit performing with Mr. Buddy Guy, Phil Guy, James Cotton, Eddy Clearwater, Junior Wells, George Baze, as well as touring with blues legend, Jimmy Dawkins.

Through the next 20-plus years, and now an eight times Grammy elected artist, Charles enjoyed being featured in numerous television and radio broadcasts and several music magazines, along with gracing countless stages and pages including the Chicago Blues Fest, Philadelphia Jazz and Blues Fest, Windy City Live Television, WGN TV, JBTV, The Chicago Tribune, The Chicago Sun Times, and the College Music Journal.

In October 2015, Charles received the extreme honor of an induction into the Blues Hall of Fame.

He has received endorsements from Vertex and LR Baggs in in Canada from Godin/Seagull Guitars.

His discography is comprised of 32 releases including a double CD 30-year anthology released in 2014 and the live CD “Concert at the Nest”, released in the winter of 2015.

Charles embarks on his 10th consecutive tour in 2017, the All I Really Know Tour, which will once again take him to the far corners of the USA, Canada, and Australia.
