Check out a feature on Burton in the March 2013 issue of Blues E-News:
Known as "San Diego's Blues Ambassador to the World," Burton has performed for over forty years and has released four Cd's with the Charles Burton Blues Band. Burton currently spends about six months a year touring throughout Europe. In addition to his own group, Burton also often performs with another popular San Diego blues band, Bayou Brothers. His most recent album release is "Favorites," a collection of tasty covers by well-known artists including Duke Robillard, Doc Pomus, and Johnny 'Guitar' Watson to name a few.
"Favorites provides a great vehicle for the Charles Burton Blues Band to showcase their tight ensemble playing." BARRELHOUSE BLUES
"Though the music here has international appeal, Burton and his guitar play good old American Roadhouse Blues, mixing in some interesting pop/rock choices...he can sing just fine and his guitar playing is clean and versatile." SAN DIEGO TROUBADOUR
