Oxford Music And Folk: Charlie Dore with Julian Littman at Quaker Meeting House,
March 19th doors 7pm
Multi-award winner Charlie Dore returns to Oxford Music And Folk, bringing a genre-defying evening of ‘intriguingly other’ eclectic, contemporary folk – bursting with earworms and crunchy lyrics.
Charlie and her long-time collaborator Julian Littman of Steeleye Span will swap guitars, piano, mandolin, harmonium, ukuleles, banjo and stories as they showcase songs from her newest album, ‘Like Animals’ alongside favourites from the past seven albums.
Even though this show is in Spring- March 19th, the pair 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.
‘A gift for melody, lyrically brave, poignant, entertaining, original.’ The Guardian ****
‘…this sublime album…earnest and witty, tender and cynical all at the same time.’ RnR Magazine
‘A voice like Kate McGarrigle meets Dory Previn. Wonderful.’ Mike Harding
