Their sound will take you from the traditional music of Newfoundland and Labrador, down through the Appalachian Mountains into the land of bluegrass and country music and across the ocean to French cabarets filled with gypsy and swing music. These two consummate guitar players complement their enchanting guitar styles with an occasional song from Craig’s rich repertoire.

Duane Andrews and Craig Young - Charlie's Boogie Cover hi resCharlie's Boogie features 11 instrumental tracks and one vocal track (The D-18 Song) carefully chosen to represent the various influences ranging from the gypsy jazz of legendary French guitarist Django Reinhardt (Confessin') to the 'Father of Bluegrass' Bill Monroe (Tennessee Blues) with a dash of traditional music from Newfoundland (Old Boney/ Good Morning You Would Like Some Tea). All of these influences are felt in the two original compositions offered by Duane (The Supermoon Rag) and Craig (Cat's In The Bag). The album title track is a tip of the hat to the late Canadian guitar hero Smiley Bates, and is a composition of Mr. Bates that both Duane and Craig learned in their pre-teen years as budding guitar pickers.
