Charlie, along with multi-instrumentalist Julian Littman from Steeleye Span, and Gareth Huw-Davies will be launching brand new release, Dark Matter, at a stunning evening of original songs at beautiful St Pancras Old Church, London
Doors from 7pm, music from 7.30pm TICKETS HERE
As well as playing songs from the new album, Charlie, along with multi-instrumentalist Julian Littman from Steeleye Span and 5 string double bass player Gareth Huw-Davies will dip into previous album Milk Roulette, followed perhaps by a couple from 2011’s award-winning Cheapskate Lullabies, their version of Charlie’s first ever single, Fear of Flying (covered by George Harrison) plus a fresh take on her iconic hit ‘Pilot of the Airwaves’. This will be a night of eclectic, contemporary folk as the pair swap guitars, piano, mandolin, harmonium, & ukulele.
The new album, Dark Matter promises a cocktail of the metaphysical and the miniature, big themes and tiny dramas both sad and funny, served in a beautiful but cracked glass. With titles like 2000 Hour Light Bulb, Fifteen Minutes with Danny Kaye and Personal Hell, Charlie raids the instrument cupboard and shines an eclectic light on some of her darkest material yet.
Dark Matter has already started picking up some head-swellingly great reviews:
“Dark Matter…an amazingly astute, moving, intelligent and connected songwriter… a voice like Kate Mpcgarrigle meets Dory Previn. Wonderful” Mike Harding
“Beautiful, existential, metaphysical and intruigingly other. Zen folk I want to call it…No one else makes albums like this. Charlie Dore’s ‘Time Out of Mind'” Ricky Ross, BBC Scotland
“She’s the real deal…wondering where she gets inspiration for her lyrics. Rarely heard any so clever.” Fatea
