Chirp Cafe Live Music Series Presents: Austin Charnis
Austin Charnis is a classical and contemporary fingerstyle guitarist from Peekskill, NY. His primary focus is weddings and formal events, but you can find him performing around the Hudson Valley at venues ranging from cafés and breweries to farmers’ markets and street fairs.
Austin’s influences include Yamandu Costa, Eduardo Fernandez, Antonio Lauro, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Chet Atkins, Tommy Emmanuel and many more. His repertoire revolves around a wide variety of traditional and contemporary South American selections, but don't be surprised to hear fingerstyle arrangements of rock, blues, and maybe a few jazz standards!
