If you like country, blues, cajun and honky-tonk music, then you are going to enjoy a Charley Crockett concert. The 32 year-old singer, guitarist and songwriter hails from Texas and learned his musical skills the hard way, playing on the streets of New Orleans and New York. In 2015 his debut album A Stolen Jewel appeared, and he has since released no fewer than five albums. His most recent effort, an album of his own songs, Lonesome as a Shadow, from 2018, has garnered fine reviews, and Rolling Stone magazine named it among the 25 best country and americana albums of 2018. Also in 2018, Charley Crockett has put out the album Lil’ GL’s Blue Bonanza: covers of classic blues and country songs. On his website, he states his attitude to songwriting and singing others’ songs like this: “I love timeless songs. I’ve always believed that the more timeless songs you learn how to play, the more timeless songs you can write.” And yes, he really is descended from the historical Davy Crockett. Unique Danish festival concert in 2019.
