Charles Bradley Is Still Going Strong

Charles Bradley © Per Ole HagenLast year was the first time I saw Charles Bradley at the Oya Festival in Oslo. I was amazed by his voice and also by hjs performance. His style is uniquely personal, but with strong influences from the Black Velvet man, James Brown. Today Charles Bradley played at Bergen Fest, and I realized I was right last year, he is unique!

Since I wrote about him from last year’s Oya Festival, and his reprtoire hasn’t changed much, you can read it here. There is also a review of his concert today at NRK P3 by Totto Mjelde, which you will find here. (For those non-Norwegian speaking, I can recommend Google Translate. Here are some pictures from this year’s Bergen Fest.
