Charlie McCoy In The UK

July 15th, 2019


Essential Elvis UK is pleased to be promoting this great event with Pizza Express Live Holborn, London on August 19th and 20th 2019

Two legends come together for the first time here in an amazing collaboration in which country meets jazz at PizzaExpress Live Holborn. Superstar Rhapsody in Rock pianist Robert Wells together with his trio and country giant on Harmonica, Charlie McCoy, will give just two performances which combine their talents, providing spellbinding musicianship and unrivalled entertainment! Bluegrass, Boogie Woogie, Blues and Country will be the stuff of these two nights. Wells and McCoy have worked together before and recorded an album at Sun Studios Memphis Tennessee in 2017 together with fellow country great, Billy Dean and Wells’ wife Maria

Charlie is a Grammy-Winning country multi-talented session musician based in Nashville, where he went for a week back in 1959; he never looked back. As being one of the most famous world-renowned Harmonica player Charlie has recorded close to 40 studio albums of his own and has worked with stars like Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, Perry Como, Joan Baez, Johnny Cash, Chet Atkins, Loretta Lynn and, of course, Elvis!

Thirteen of his singles have entered the Billboard country charts. Charlie was inducted into the International Musicians Hall of Fame in 2007 and is simply an amazing musician
