A very special night with multi award-winning Charlie Dore, brought to you by Victoria Hall, and presented nearby in Hellifield Village Hall. Charlie has written for the great and the good, but her live show reveals that actually she keeps the best songs for herself.
Her own music is often described as eclectic, contemporary folk, and Julian Littman, fresh from touring with his ‘other’ band, Steeleye Span, is always up for an improvised solo or two. No two nights are the same and the array of instruments – guitars, piano, mandolin, harmonium, autoharp & ukulele – is constantly swapped as they dip into last year’s Milk Roulette album, 2011’s award-winning Cheapskate Lullabyes, preview tracks from forthcoming album Dark Matter, plus the original versions of Fear of Flying (covered by George Harrison) and Ain’t No Doubt (her No 1 for Jimmy Nail), and a fresh take on her iconic hit ‘Pilot of the Airwaves’.
