Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017 Charlie Dore With Julian Littman Acoustic Music Centre @ UCC (Venue 138) Review Thursday 17th August

HOMEPAGE FRINGE 2017 PAGE PAST REVIEWS 2017 PAST REVIEWS 2016

Charlie Dore, singer-songwriter teams up with multi-instrumentalist Julian Littman of Steeleye Span at  Acoustic Music Centre @ UCC at  14 Royal Terrace for a very informal and low key show at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe.  For a little under an hour, we take a pleasant journey through some songs from the back catalogue of Charlie Dore and also some material from her new album “Dark Matter”.

A lot of the audience here for this show probably remember Charlie Dore best for her song “Pilot of the Airwaves” (her 1979 chart hit), but there is far more to this artist than this one song.  Charlie Dore is not only a skilled songwriter with a natural gift for words and telling a story, but also an artist brave enough to examine not only what is around her, but also her own private life and feelings in her songs, and few artists are comfortable with that level of exposure in their music.

Charlie Dore may or may not be a performer who you are familiar with directly over the years since that original chart hit, but somewhere out there the chances that you have heard her music played are high, as she has had her work recorded by many other artists – including Tina Tuner, George Harrison, Sheena Easton and Jimmy Nail, and songs of the quality of “Dog out Looking for His Day”, “Breakfast Of Neutrinos” (both from the new Dark Matter album) , “Firewater” and “Lion Tamer” clearly show why so many other recording artists are attracted to the songs of Charlie Dore and why so many performers, musicians and writers hold her work in such high respect.
