Charlie is friends with 70-somethings who think they’re 20, ‘cause he’s a 20-something who seems like he’s 70. He has a pension for all things retro, including blues music, pompadours, old suitcases and garment bags. All of this foundation building paid off. Charlie’s guitar appears to be part of his body when he’s on stage, like a third arm. It is not uncommon to see him weaving throughout crowds and jumping from drum kit to table, while singing his heart out, and never losing a note on the guitar. With his first musical stage performance occurring at age 4, it is possible that Charlie Jacobson’s first baby soother was a guitar pick. Both of his parents were are musicians and Charlie would fall asleep listening to the sounds of his parent’s band practices. He has backed up and been backed up by some of the Canadian blues giants: Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne, Russell Jackson, Sherman “Tank” Doucette, David Vest and Donald Ray Johnson, to name a few.

Maurice John Vaughn is a true blues original. A triple threat on guitar, saxophone and vocals, Vaughn writes powerful, innovative and often humorous songs that spring directly from his vast musical experience. His soulful and passionate vocals are convincing because they are earned — Vaughn means what he sings. Coming out of the streets of Chicago, Vaughn was raised on Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf, black Top 40 and James Brown. Like the greats who have come before him, he has incorporated his various influences into a blues and R&B style that is completely his own.
12:00 pm : Tim Williams
Live Lunch Solo! Noon - 2pm.
Tim has shared stages with a large roster of well known blues and roots music artists, and the following list is by no means complete: Taj Mahal, Big Jack Johnson, Rory Block, Roy Rogers, The Earl Scruggs Revue, John Fahey, Bonnie Raitt, Lyle Lovett, Dr. John, The Holmes Brothers, David Lindley, Ramblin\' Jack Elliott, Mary Flower, Paul Geremia, John Hammond, Martin Simpson, Guy Davis, Eric Bibb, Odetta, B.B. King, Robert Lockwood Jr., Honeyboy Edwards, Junior Wells and Buddy Guy. Tim's live solo shows (he also works with his band, the Electro-Fires) are a trip down the river of North American music...blues, ragtime, old-time country with dashes of Mexican and Hawaiian influence, performed on a variety of string instruments.
