Craven Herald Review of Victoria Hall, Settle gig with Fake Thackray – Gill O Donnell

“…..Too often with Reg it is easy to overlook the skilled musician because your focus is held by the lyricism and cleverly woven stories.

From his opening chords the audience was spellbound and the magic lasted throughout the performance. This ability to captivate the listener is clearly one of his greatest strengths but like Thackray, Reg also has a real talent for playing with words.

His inspiration is from many sources but he researches the events before re-telling them in haunting songs such as Lizzie Loved A Highwayman, which strips away the romanticism from the tale of Dick Turpin.

    My wife Margaret and heard Reg on Mike Harding’s folk show and made a point of seeing him in Settle. He is a brilliant songwriter, singer and musician – and we enjoyed his verbal introductions and humour too. We were so keen to see him again, we even crawled through the rush hour traffic from Stockport to Wigan to his gig at Wigan parish church on Friday 28 March where he was equally brilliant. (Finding our way out of Wigan to M6 afterwards was not so brilliant!) Thanks Reg, and thanks Mike for introducing us to him.
