Sir Charles Atkins, Professor of the Blues,Tallahassee's Soul Brother Number One: these are all titles that Charles Atkins has earned. To most people, he is known as a serious musician and a polite gentleman with a social conscious. A real, down home person, and a talented musician with a big heart. Charles learned music at the Florida School for the Blind in Saint Augustine, Florida. Like Ray Charles, another famous alumni of that school, his chosen instruments are keyboards and vocals. He has performed with Sam and Dave, the Ink Spots, and Benny Latimore. He has since branched out on his own. Charles Atkins is not just a piano player, a soulful vocalist, and a talented songwriter. He has produced and played for other artists' recordings. Charles is willing to share his experience, teaching music in several settings. Paul Montgomery, who started his career as a blues singer, has taken a different path than Charles. Paul's first love is gospel music. He's toured with the Blind Boys of Alabama, and has toured around the country and worldwide as a gospel artist. 'Charles and Paul Reunion' is their second collaboration.
