Few people have been as central to their piece of the Cleveland music scene as Charlie Mosbrook. His turf is acoustic singer/songwriter/folk music.  He’s been performing for 30 years, releasing albums, collaborating with and encouraging other artists, hosting open mic nights and (currently) serving as president of acoustic music nonprofit Folknet, which he helped raise from a period of dormancy. He has steadfastly continued to be a major force in Cleveland acoustic music despite a back injury, which has limited his movement and often requires him to use a wheelchair. His disability hasn’t stopped him from even going on the road — take that, you whiners!

There’s a familiar comfortable feeling that comes over you  when you listen to the music of Charlie Mosbrook. The guy has a rich, worldly voice that sounds like it was broken in slowly, like a well-loved instrument."
  - No Depression

A Time Long Gone (Charlie Mosbrook)
The lead track “Up Among the Stars” leaps right out and invites you to settle in for more. The rest of album makes it a welcome invitation indeed.
 - Kelly Walker (Sundilla Music)

There is something wonderful about being able to tell somebody by their voice... A distinctive voice, Sam Baker, John Prine, you know right away who they are...
Charlie Mosbrook is that kind of singer."

- Artie Martello (Mostly Folk)
