Friday 23rd June at 7.30pm
CHARLIE DORE with Julian Lippman
The Dark Matter Tour
A very special evening of eclectic, contemporary folk as Charlie Dore, one of the UK’s most respected songwriters teams up with multi-instrumentalist Julian Littman of Steeleye Span to present new album Dark Matter.
Charlie promises another raid on the instrument cupboard as the pair swap guitars, mandolin, harmonium, ukulele, piano and autoharp as well as some new and different flavours to shine a personal light on her subject matter. They’ll dip into favourites from the past 6 albums too and also share some original acoustic versions of hits Charlie has written for others, including George Harrison and Jimmy Nail. She may even do a new version of Pilot of the Airwaves if we ask nicely…
“Dark Matter - an amazingly astute, moving, intelligent and connected songwriter…a voice like Kate McGarrigle meets Dory Previn. Wonderful ”. Mike Harding.
“Beautiful, existential, and intruigingly other. Zen folk I want to call it…Charlie Dore’s ‘Time Out of Mind’ “ Ricky Ross, BBC Scotland.
Support is from Support from The Huers at 7.30pm
The Huers are a folk roots acoustic duo from the North West of England, made up of Phil Caffrey and Ian Cleverdon.
