Too Sick Charlie and his genuine one man band have gained a reputation of playing uncompromising, no-nonsense  roots music, deeply influenced by the blues of the north Mississippi Hill country. With his 3 string cigar box guitar he picks out hip-shakin’ licks and lays down some solid beats with his drum kit. And throw in some harp for good measure. It’s the best low-down boogie in the neighborhood.
