About Charlie Hawkins

Vocalist and guitarist based in the North-West, performing a range of styles to give your event that special touch!
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Music is incredibly important to me and I believe that it's meant to be shared! Live music lifts any event and I love performing great songs for amazing audiences. I've been playing and singing since I was tiny. I chose to study music at university and this gave me many incredible experiences performing to huge crowds and honing my skills. I performed throughout university and beyond into my professional life - in local music venues, at pubs and bars, at festivals, and at weddings and events. Particular highlights have been performing at Montreux Jazz Festival and at my sister's wedding. With an eclectic music taste, I enjoy performing in a range of styles including pop, jazz, blues and rock but I am always looking for new music, so please do send any song requests! As well as performing, I write original music and I work as a music therapist.

Charlie was beyond lovely and a very talented artist. She played at a celebration party for my sons baptism. She contacted me straight away to ask if we had any requests. Charlie learnt several personal songs for us which really made the day so special and personal. Her singing was beautiful and we had so many people comment afterwards how much they enjoyed listening to Charlie! If we ever have another event we will definitely be booking Charlie again. Thank you so much xxxx

Charlie covered a short notice cancellation for us in Chester. She was very quick to respond, professional and smashed the gig. She followed the brief as requested. Everyone was really pleased. Would definitely reccommend

‘Charlie is a fantastic dynamic artist offering music from a broad range of genres. She sets the perfect atmosphere through her performance for Saturday night acoustic entertainment in our Georgian stable setting. Our customers always give great feedback on her performances and evidently thoroughly enjoy anytime we have Charlie in the stables. We never hesitate to have Charlie back again and again!’

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I always try my best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let me know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

I can play a suitable playlist through the PA before and between sets and during pack down, free of charge. Just let me know what you'd like and I'll try to make it happen.

How much time do you need to set up?

It depends on the size of the event, but I usually need about 45mins for set up time before the performance. As soon as the PA is set up, I can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! I bring my own PA system and instruments to suit the needs of your event.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance that I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I am happy to do this for you, free of charge (up to a limit of three new songs per event).
