This Is Americana! The Story of Charles Phoenix & His Retro Slideshows

Charles Phoenix is a unmistakably one of the most unique entertainers celebrating the impact of Americana culture. As the self-proclaimed "Ambassador of Americana", Charles tours the globe showcasing his extensive collection of Kodacrome slides and stories. He captivates large audiences by peeling back the layers of time and introduces them to a wild and beautiful world that no longer exists. We visit Phoenix as he invites us in his home and shares how the magic happens.

"I don't want to live back in time — I just want to kind of be able to touch it. And by doing what I do, I can."
