As a multi-instrumentalist performer I weave ukulele, accordion, ukuleles, musical saw, cello and other objects into songs. Sometimes using a loop pedal to build up the sound scapes, sometimes playing with fabulous musicians like Barney Morse-Brown, Jane Griffiths and Colin Fletcher.

‘Henry’s soft, warm and mellow voice and the complicated but gentle arrangements of her music complemented the Warneford Chapel superbly.’ The Oxford Culture Review
‘With a smile in her voice as big as the one on her face, Charlie Henry’s winning personality is part of the appeal of her charming, quirky performance. She also has the considerable advantage of her ukulele and accordion being joined by Barney Morse-Brown’s cello…
Charlie’s world is more knowing than first impressions imply and in a crammed market of worldly wise female singer- songwriters, it’s surely by continuing to play to her winsome self that she stands the best chance of standing out from the crowd.’ Colin may Nightshift, June 2015.
” Rarely have I heard a cello used more imaginatively than when Charlie Henry brings Max Reinhardt’s music to life on stage, from syncopated pizzicato to tremolo for tension and vamp for jolly tunes. The pairing of this with Arun Ghosh’s fine clarinet and keyboard work comes off well too.
Clare de Loon’s busy, homely set enables the cast to play plenty of interactive ‘Can you see..?’ games with the children, as they look for kitchen utensils for games and projects. The Christmas sky at the end – with giant twinkly croissant moon and crossed baguettes for stars – is delightful.”
