Not many contemporary songwriters who play Liverpool can claim to have had a song recorded by one of the Beatles. George Harrison heard singer-songwriter Charlie Dore’s song Fear of Flying (from the same album as her better known hit “Pilot of the Airwaves”) and liked it so much he recorded a demo version of his own. It remains in Olivia Harrison’s private collection, but she allowed Jools Holland to play this short extract on his show.

Charlie plays Liverpool Philhamonic’s Music Room Saturday June 24th accompanied by multi-instrumentalist Julian Littman of Steeleye Span and will be sharing her new album, Dark Matter, a collection of eclectic, contemporary folk – which has drawn enthusiastic reviews “…an amazingly astute, moving, intelligent and connected songwriter…a voice like Kate McGarrigle meets Dory Previn. Wonderful ”. (Mike Harding)
“Beautiful, existential, metaphysical and intruigingly other. Zen folk I want to call it…Charlie Dore’s ‘Time Out of Mind’ “ (Ricky Ross, BBC Scotland, Deacon Blue)
