Charlie Dore with Julian Littman: 8 instruments, 20 songs, 90 mins

Friday 21st June 2019 - Starts 8pm



“Dark Matter…{Dore is} an amazingly astute, moving, intelligent and connected songwriter…a voice like Kate McGarrigle meets Dory Previn. Wonderful.” Mike Harding 

A very special evening of eclectic, contemporary folk as multi-awardwinner Charlie Dore, one of the UK’s most respected songwriters, teams up with multi-instrumentalist Julian Littman of Steeleye Span to share her current album, Dark Matter. This album has just won the coveted Album Of The Year award from the USA Indie Acoustic Project.

The evening promises a fast-moving show as the pair swap guitars, mandolin, harmonium, ukulele, piano and autoharp, along with the stories behind the songs and the kind of  banter that only comes from knowing each other since they were 16 years old.

They’ll also dip into favourites from the past six albums as well as sharing original acoustic versions of hits Charlie has written for others, including George Harrison and Jimmy Nail. They may even play a new version of Pilot of the Airwaves if we ask nicely…

“A gift for melody, brave, poignant, entertaining, original.” Guardian ★★★★
