‘A gift for melody, brave, poignant, entertaining, original' Guardian ★★★★ 

A very special evening of eclectic, contemporary folk as Charlie Dore, one of the UK’s most respected songwriters teams up with multi-instrumentalist Julian Littman of Steeleye Span and virtuoso double bass player Gareth Huw Davies for a preview her brand new album, Dark Matter. 


The new collection, described as a cocktail of speculation, stories and dreams served up in a hand-blown glass includes the songs Two Thousand Hour Lightbulb, Breakfast of Neutrinos, 15 Minutes With Danny Kaye and Personal Hell. Charlie promises another raid on the instrument cupboard as the pair swap guitars, mandolin, harmonium, ukulele, piano and autoharp as well as some new and different flavours to shine a personal light on her subject matter. 
 
They’ll dip into favourites from the past 6 albums too and also share some 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…

‘Beautific of voice, fragrant of melody and lyrically fearless’ MOJO ★★★★

The Kingston Barn will be out of action due to a fab new kitchen extension, so we are delighted to be guests of the Fitzwalter family in the beautiful converted cowshed at Goodnestone. See Venues page for more information including address and directions.
