CHARLIE MORRIS & T.C. CARR  SoTpaHouseConcert  7:30 Thur  Wed Sept 20

  SUNSET CHARLIE..          




Per Charlie:  My original Americana and Blues music comes with a little Tennessee twang, a little Louisiana spice and a big hunk of Florida gator tail. Come have some!        

     Per Charlie:  This was a highlight of the year, a house concert for a lively bunch of original music fans. It's the third time I've played at Gloria's place - thanks so much to her and Craig for promoting live music. Al, Tom and I played songs from The Forest, a few St Pete Mountain Boys numbers, a couple of new ones that will be on the upcoming Folkie CD, and of course a bit of blues. We wound up with a rousing singalong on I Know You Rider.

 Here's what Charlie has to say about T.C.:  (The two did a gig together last night in St Pete @MNM BarBQ where Charlie hosts open mic night - plus featured guest  every Wed )..    Harmonica madman TC Carr. has played with all kinds of famous people, from Dickey Betts, who called him "one of the best I ever heard" (and made him snort gin with him) to Bruce Hornsby, who called TC's harmonica style "a lost art." TC's band has won every accolade there is to win in the Tampa Bay area, and regularly packs the Ka-Tiki and other local venues.   TC and I have been friends for many years. He's appeared on several of my CDs, including the recent Bluescoast Sessions. We have a live CD in the works, recorded at a festival on the beach a few years ago. When TC and I get together, we always have a blast, and you will too. If you come, that is - if you don't, you'll end up having a cold hot dog for dinner, throwing up in the sink and crying yourself to sleep.
