Thu 18 Jun
Folk

Charlie Dore

‘An amazingly astute, moving, intelligent and connected songwriter… a voice like Kate McGarrigle meets Dory Previn. Wonderful’. Mike Harding

A night of eclectic, contemporary folk as Charlie Dore launches her 10th album at Kings Place, joined by long-time collaborator Julian Littman of Steeleye Span, virtuoso double bass player Gareth Huw Davies along with some very special guests.


Charlie is one of the UK’s most respected songwriters. In an unusually diverse career her songs have won two Ascap awards, an Ivor Novello nomination, both the Overall Grand and the Folk Prize from the International Acoustic Music Awards.Her 2017 album Dark Matter won both Album of the Year and Best Lyrics from the US Indie Acoustic Project.

She has also worked as an actress in theatre, film, (in the award-winning Ploughman’s Lunch, playing opposite Jonathan Pryce)TV, radio with Eric Idle and also co-founded London Comedy Impro venue, The Hurricane Club, performing alongside many comedy icons including Bill Bailey, Jo Brand and Robin Williams.

While her own albums favour her more eclectic/roots leanings, she is one of a handful of UK writers to achieve success across many genres, defined by the range of artists to have recorded her songs, including Tina Turner, George Harrison, Celine Dion and Paul Carrack, notching up along the way a UK No 1, a US No 4 and Top 10 hits in Germany, Italy and France. She has also composed for three BBC drama series and two films. Her own hit, Pilot of the Airwaves is still a worldwide radio favourite.
