Forest of Dean Folk Club


In a rare solo show Charlie Dore shares songs from her double award-winning album, Dark Matter and spotlights personal favourites from her last six albums as well as unique takes on songs she has written for platinum-selling artists, some never before performed live in their original form.
The evening promises a multi-layered show as Charlie swaps between guitar, piano, ukulele and harmonium, her background in folk & roots music very much in evidence, as are her years of experience as an actor and improviser. The stories in between the songs are often dark and funny, the rapport with her audience always instant and relaxed. This multi-award-winner is one of only a handful of contemporary writers to have had success across so many different genres. Tina Turner, George Harrison, Celine Dion, Paul Carrack and Jimmy Nail have all covered Charlie’s songs.
Her own worldwide hit, Pilot of The Airwaves is still a staple of UK And US radio playlists… yet her contemporary songs favour her more eclectic, acoustic roots, winning her two Ascap awards, an Ivor Novello nomination, both the Overall Grand and the Folk Prize from the International Acoustic Music Awards and in 2012 Best Album Lyrics from the Indy Acoustic Project for her album Cheapskate Lullabyes, which also awarded her 2017 album, ‘Dark Matter’ both Best Album of the Year and Best Lyrics.
“…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 ★★★★
“Beautiful, existential, metaphysical and intruigingly other. Zen folk I want to call it…Charlie Dore’s ‘Time Out of Mind’ “ Ricky Ross, BBC Scotland.
