Reviews

‘A clever songwriter, social satirist and bittersweet romantic somewhere between Jake Thackray and Jacques Brel.’                   John Walsh, Independent

‘I thought the songs and the performance were droll, cunning, well-arranged, and thoroughly delightful.’                                      John Lahr, chief drama critic of the New Yorker

‘Had the room in stitches…The secret love child of Richard Digance and Victoria Wood, Blacker seems happiest when puncturing pomposity and self-delusion.’               Dylan Hearn, Suffolk Scribblings.

‘A great night. Our audience loved your songs.’ Simon and  Val Haines, Hadleigh Folk and Acoustic Club

‘Hilariously entertaining.’ Mary Dickinson, Everyman Folk Club

  

Reviews of SOMETIMES YOUR FACE DON’T FIT

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

‘All the songs are funny, pertinent and tuneful.’  The Oldie

 

Reviews of  MY VILLAGE AND OTHER ALIENS 

‘A relaxed, amusing hour, and a tribute to the silences, solitudes and self-preoccupations of rural life… Blacker’s songs confirm him as a man for tricksy rhymes and a pleasingly mournful middle-aged scepticism (think Jacques Brel meets Tom Lehrer).’              Libby Purves, The Times

 ‘An accomplished Fringe debut…illuminating and enjoyable. There’s a pleasing bite behind the melodies… Blacker, with guitar on his knee, is a natural raconteur.’             Alice Jones, Independent

 ‘Honest, dry and charmingly musical… Succeeds in evocatively crafting a whole village.’               Three Weeks
