Charlie Dore with Julian Littman and Gareth Huw Davies.
Multi-award winner Charlie Dore brings a genre-defying evening of ‘intriguingly other’ eclectic, contemporary folk – bursting with earworms and crunchy lyrics.
Charlie will be joined by long term co-pilot and muti-instrumentalist Julian Littman of Steeleye Span and 5 string Double Bass player Gareth Huw Davies. The trio will swap guitars, piano, mandolin, harmonium, ukuleles, banjo and stories as they showcase songs from her latest album, ‘Like Animals’ alongside favourites from the past seven albums.
They also plan to fly in the face of seasonal tradition and share 3 songs from the her popular newest release, the EP ‘The Man Who Built Christmas’, on the basis that a good song isn’t just for Christmas. One of the UK’s most respected songwriters, Charlie has written for the good and the great, including Tina Turner, George Harrison, Celine Dion and Paul Carrack, but her live shows reveal that she keeps the best songs for herself. They may even do a new version of her own hit, Pilot of The Airwaves, still a worldwide radio favourite.
