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.
