Charlie Dore at the Kitchen Garden Birmingham with Garath Huw-Davies
A very special evening of eclectic, contemporary folk at the Kitchen Garden, Birmingham, as Charlie Dore, one of the UK’s most respected songwriters teams up with virtuoso 5 string double bass player Gareth Huw Davies 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. They’ll dip into favourites from the past 6 albums as well as sharing stories and original acoustic versions of hits Charlie has written for others, including George Harrison and Jimmy Nail.
“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 ★★★★)
