International Performer Coming to Hays (VIDEO)
The Hays Public Library will be hosting an international performer. Australian Blues guitarist Nick Charles will be playing Saturday, September 14 at 3:00 p.m. in the Schmidt Gallery.
Adult Librarian Marleah Augustine told Hays Post that Charles travels internationally, touring in Italy, Germany, and the UK among other places, but recently he began adding Hays to his list of stops.
“We, a few years ago, had a patron see him play elsewhere in the state and recommended him as a performer. So we got in touch with him and he said ‘yeah, I’d love to stop.’ Any time he comes through the States he lets me know and we see if we can work out a date.”
Augustine added that while it’s a great opportunity for residents to see an international performer, Charles puts on a great show.
“Nick is very charismatic; he involves the audience in his performances. He’s just an all-around great performer.”
