Terence Blacker

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Tuesday 26 th November 2019

The Pheasantry (Chelsea)

"Nothing about Terence Blacker is particularly normal," wrote the critic for Maverick magazine about Terence's last CD. Other critics agreed - "Witty, fresh, funny, fabulous" wrote Gyles Brandreth, while the Sunday Times found "a quiet masterpiece". According to Tom Robinson on BBC6 Music, it was "huge fun - it put a big smile on my face". A favourite at music and literary festivals here and abroad, Terence writes songs about the challenges and confusions of 21st century life with a hilarious, life-affirming honesty.  Now, following up his last storming sell-out show at the Pheasantry, Terence will be singing songs from his new CD 'Playing For Time' and revisiting some old favourites, accompanied by the brilliant Italian guitarist Giovanni Rago. Expect tenderness, nostalgia, originality, a touch of satire -  and a big smile on your face.

"Huge fun... it put a big smile on my face."

Tom Robinson, BBC6 Music

"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
