Making her Scarborough debut is singer-songwriter Charlie Dore when she plays Woodend on Thursday September 22.

“I’ll be playing with my long-time co-pilot Julian Littman, from Steeleye Span.

“The show is acoustic-roots-contemporary folk and is pretty fast-moving,” said Charlie.

“Between us we play eight different instruments and share a few stories.

“We’ve worked together since we were 16 at drama school.”

Known as one of the UK’s most respected songwriters, Charlie’s music, however, reflects her roots-acoustic background and is best described as eclectic, contemporary folk.

She enjoys a multi-faceted career that also includes acting in film, TV and radio, writing for radio, composition for film and TV and comedy improvisation.

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 and Best Album Lyrics from the Indy Acoustic Project for her album Cheapskate Lullabyes.

She is one of a handful of UK writers to have success across many genres, defined by the range of artists to have covered her songs, including George Harrison, Tina Turner, Celine Dion, Lisa Stansfield and Paul Carrack.
