Charlie Moon (born March 8th, 1989) is an Irish jazz guitarist, singer and composer based in Dublin.
He is the son of jazz singer Mia Parsons and legendary blues and jazz guitarist and singer Nigel Mooney “Ireland’s King of the blues” - BBC. He was exposed to a variety of music at an early age and on the night he was born, his father played support to B.B. King in the old stadium in Dublin with his then famous ‘Gripewater Blues Band’, so Charlie’s genes were steeped in the blues and jazz traditions from day one.
