A’Court says of his music, “In my world, music speaks louder than words.” And right up to his latest CD, “Triumph and Disaster,” A’Court speaks the language which crosses all borders and cultures: rockin’ blues. Named as Nova Scotia’s top entertainer at the 2009 Music Nova Scotia Awards, A’Court is synonymous with impassioned performances that grip an audience the very moment he takes the stage.
Winner of the East Coast Music Awards 2007 Pop Recording of the Year and 2007 Music Nova Scotia Blues Recording of the Year for his album “Bring On The Storm” and 2003 Best Blues Artist for his debut album “Color Me Gone,” Charlie A’Court is an emotionally charged and soul moving performer. Fearlessly bridging genres and challenging stylistic conventions, his music and passionate voice stir up the listeners’ emotions, touching the very core of audiences around the world.
And as an added feature at this concert, beginning at 5:30 p.m., the Tillotson Center will be having a barbeque just before the show for concertgoers who would like to purchase hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, soft drinks and more. All sales of the concessions will go to helping complete construction of the Tillotson Center, which has served as an anchor for over 25 shows hosted at the facility by the GNWCA since 2011. “Come and join the barbeque on the grounds of the Tillotson Center before the show and then head upstairs for a memorable concert,” Jordan suggests. “You’ll be helping two local organizations working to bring the arts to the North Country, the Great North Woods Committee for the Arts and the Tillotson Center.”
