> Charlie’s songs have been recorded and sung by other performers such as Pete Seeger, Holly Near, Ronnie Gilbert, John McCutcheon, Arlo Guthrie, Peggy Seeger, Chad Mitchell and Judy Small.  Honors include: an "Indie" award for one of the top three folk recordings of 1984; the War Resisters League’s 1998 Peacemaker Award given to Charlie and Odetta; the 1999 Sacco-Vanzetti Social Justice Award for which he was nominated by Pete Seeger; the 2009 International Labor Communications Association award for Best Labor History Story.  Charlie has released a dozen solo albums since 1976.   He has also released three albums with the touring ensemble Bright Morning Star, and numerous compilation albums with other artists. 
> Charlie was born in 1947, and was raised in Brockton, MA.  He cites as musical influences the folk music revival of the 1960’s, the civil rights movement and the Vietnam War era.  Folk legend Peggy Seeger says, “If we had more Charlie Kings in the world I’d be less worried,” and Tom Paxton adds, “Luckily, we have him!”
