Weds 27 Jan – a rare chance to see this multi award winning songwriter solo
TICKETS £10–the-boileroom/
Charlie Dore returns with a rare solo show that spotlights personal favourites from her last five 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.Known for her often quietly subversive lyrics delivered via classic melodies, 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.
