Charlie Dore & Julian Littman in Otley

Charlie Dore & Julian Littman
Otley Courthouse, Otley
Friday 25th January 2019, £13.00

A very special evening of eclectic, contemporary folk with crunchy lyrics as Charlie Dore, one of the UKs most respected songwriters teams up with virtuoso 5 string double bass player Gareth Huw Davies to to share songs from her double-award-winning album, Dark Matter.  Charlie swaps between guitars, harmonium, ukulele, piano and autoharp while Gareth, who has played with everyone from Chrissie Hind & Mark Eitzel to Sir Willard White also plays cello and keyboards. Theyll dip into favourites from the past 6 albums too as well as sharing stories and 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"A gift for melody, brave, poignant, entertaining, original" Guardian ★★★★
