Littleborough Unplugged concerts

by | 18 May 2018 | Gainsborough, Local Charity, Music, Retford

Littleborough Unplugged are acoustic music concerts featuring the best of national and international performers. These are held, from April to September, in the tiny Norman Church of St Nicholas, Littleborough (DN22 0HD); an acoustically and aesthetically excellent intimate venue. The concert proceeds support Britain’s historic architectural heritage via the Churches Conservation Trust.

Appearing at Littleborough Unplugged at 8.00pm on Saturday 26th May are Charlie Dore and Andy Gibson. Charlie is best known as one of the UK’s most respected songwriters, Charlie’s own music, however, reflects her roots-acoustic background and is best described as eclectic, contemporary folk. She enjoys a multi-faceted career that has included acting in film, TV and radio, writing for radio and composition for film and BBC 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.

Unknown as Littleborough’s only songwriter, Andy came from a background in traditional and contemporary folk music to write songs that transcend genres and are performed both with his electric band Borrowed Light and as solo acoustic — songs that will make you laugh, cry and think.
