Charlie Dore, one of the UK’s most respected songwriters teams up with virtuoso 5 string double bass player Gareth Huw Davies to share songs from her double-award-winning album, Dark Matter.

In a multi-instrumental evening of ‘intriguingly other’ eclectic folk, bursting with earworms and crunchy lyrics, Charlie will dip into favourites from past albums as well as sharing stories and original acoustic versions of hits she has written for others, including George Harrison and Jimmy Nail. Charlie has written platinum selling hits for other artists but she still keeps the best songs for herself. And there’s always a possibility of a new angle on her own song, Pilot of the Airwaves – still a national radio favourite.

Charlie swaps between guitars, harmonium, ukulele, piano and autoharp while Gareth, who has played with everyone from Chrissie Hind & Mark Eitzel to Sir Willard White also plays cello and keyboards. They’ll dip into favourites from the past 6 albums as well as sharing stories and original acoustic versions of hits Charlie has written for others, including George Harrison and Jimmy Nail.

“An amazingly astute, moving, intelligent and connected songwriter…a voice like Kate McGarrigle meets Dory Previn. Wonderful.” Mike Harding

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