The Pheasantry (Chelsea)

Making his first appearance at The Pheasantry, Terence Blacker is a songwriter whose witty, heartfelt songs have invited comparison with artists as varied as Jake Thackray, Jacques Brel and Richard Digance. The stories and characters he creates are those that tend to get lost in the bustle of modern life - a man worrying late at night about refugees, memories of a nudist party in Paris, the secret life of a suburban dad. His one-man show of songs and stories My Village and Other Aliens was part of the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe, and he has released two CDs, Lovely Little Games (2012) and Sometimes Your Face Don't Fit (2016). Terence wrote and presented Taboo-Be-Do!, a two-part BBC Radio Four documentary on politically incorrect music and , and is also a successful author and columnist.

‘There’s the witty and sporadically vulgar views of Jake Thackray, the comedic commentary of Richard Digance and now ‘Sometimes Your Face Don’t Fit’ from Terence Blacker … You’re going to love it.’ Folkwords


"Terence weaves a path between Jacques Brel and Dudley Moore…. It’s all very funny and makes you want to catch the guy live." Acoustic Magazine

"Blacker’s songs confirm him as a man for tricksy rhymes and a pleasingly mournful middle-aged scepticism." The Times

"Funny, pertinent and tuneful." The Oldie
