Reviews

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

Three Weeks

‘ 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

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

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

The Oldie

‘ 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

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

‘ Hilariously entertaining. ’

Mary Dickinson, Everyman Folk Club

‘ A great night. Our audience loved your songs. ’

Simon and Val Haines, Hadleigh Folk and Acoustic Club

‘ 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.

‘ I thought the songs and the performance were droll, cunning, well-arranged, and thoroughly delightful. ’

John Lahr, chief drama critic of the New Yorker

‘ Relaxed, funny and enjoyably provocative – I was delighted on all affronts. ’

Neil Innes

‘ Very funny… Terence weaves a path between Jacques Brel and Dudley Moore. ’
