Come and blow those January blues away with a nano-concert filled with sublime songs and musicianship. This promises to be a very special evening indeed, and the perfect way to start 2018 at The ORR.

Here’s a bit more about Charlie and her incredible songwriting credits, with details of how to book your seat.

Although best known as a respected songwriter for others, Charlie enjoys a multi-faceted career that includes acting, comedy-improvisation, writing for radio and composition for film and TV as well as performing live with her band. After drama school, regional rep and a stint in childrens’ television Charlie formed a bluegrass band playing Monday nights in a west London pancake house.
The band, with school friend Julian Littman graduated to the pub circuit from where she was signed by Island Records in 1978. She made her first album in Nashville and London and released a single, Pilot of the Airwaves, which became a hit in the US.

Since then she has made seven albums, one per decade for the 80’s (‘Listen’ for Chrysalis) and 90’s (Things Change, Black Ink), during which time she also returned to acting and started writing for other artists. She became one of a handful of UK songwriters to have success across diverse genres with songs covered by George Harrison, Tina Turner, Lisa Stansfied, Ricky Ross, Sheena Easton (US No 4), Celine Dion, Black, UB40, Status Quo, Paul Carrack and a UK No 1, ‘Ain’t No Doubt’ for Jimmy Nail.
