Charlie Dore & Julian Littman @ Thornton Hough Village Club
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
This show was rescheduled from 3rd December 2022.
Multi-award winner Charlie Dore brings a genre-defying evening of ‘intriguingly other’ eclectic, contemporary folk - bursting with earworms and crunchy lyrics.
Charlie and her long-time collaborator Julian Littman of Steeleye Span will swap guitars, piano, mandolin, harmonium, ukuleles, banjo and stories as they showcase songs from her latest album, ‘Like Animals’ alongside favourites from the past seven albums.
The pair also plan to fly in the face of seasonal tradition and share 3 songs from the her popular newest release, the EP ‘The Man Who Built Christmas’, on the basis that a good song isn’t just for Christmas. One of the UK's most respected songwriters, Charlie has written for the good and the great, including Tina Turner, George Harrison, Celine Dion and Paul Carrack, but her live shows reveal that she keeps the best songs for herself. They may even do a new version of her own hit, Pilot of The Airwaves, still a worldwide radio favourite.

One of the UK’s most respected songwriters, Charlie is one of a handful of writers to have success across many genres that differ hugely from her own eclectic, acoustic style, including songs for George Harrison, Tina Turner, Celine Dion & Jimmy Nail. Charlie is now touring with new album Dark Matter. 'A gift for melody, brave, poignant, entertaining, original ' Guardian 'Beatific of voice, fragrant of melody and lyrically fearless' MOJO 'Charlie Dore has made the album of her life' - Ricky Ross
