Update, 10 Sept: Tonight’s concert by Charlie Dore and Julian Littman is going ahead as planned. This is in accordance with the widely reported wishes of the royal household that theatres, etc, continue with their performances despite this week’s sad news.
“Multi-award winner Charlie Dore: expect 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 newest album, ‘Like Animals’ alongside favourites from the past seven albums. Even though this show is in autumn, the pair plan to fly in the face of seasonal tradition and share three songs from her popular newest release, the EP ‘The Man Who Built Christmas’ on the basis that a good song isn’t just for Christmas.
Prepare to be entertained.”
“A gift for melody, brave, poignant, entertaining, original ”  The Guardian ★★★★

John ElliottJohn Elliott

Writer, Actor, Musician John Elliott. Former lead singer with 70s band The Lesser Known Tunisians. Hard to pigeon-hole he describes his style of music as a colourful genre. Quirky songs with curious lyrics and catchy tunes.
