REVIEWS: GREAT EXPECTATIONS
“Composer and performer Ollie King manages to evoke such realism with his accordion that no further instrumentation is needed. With a few simple notes, he creates an atmosphere, evokes a setting, and produces an emotion. It is an incredible skill, for which he deserves all recognition”.
Get the Chance Wales [Theatre Clwyd, Mold]
“The other performer on stage is musician and composer Ollie King; the music is a terrific addition to this production, with some lively songs, and painting background that is at times folksy and at others downright haunting. The music is as much an important part of the set as the more solid scenery.”
The Review Hub [Richmond Theatre]
“Ollie King merits special mention for contributing so much of the atmosphere by the subtle use of accordions and violin… Ollie’s setting of the tone was always finely tuned to the action”.
The Review Hub [Buxton Opera House]
“Full marks should also go to Ollie King, whose English concertina accompaniment added some sorely needed colour to proceedings.”
Worcester News [Malvern Theatres]
“Multi–instrumentalist Ollie King’s compositions keep a slight sense of unease in the air that benefits the torrent of events packed in here’.
There Ought to be Clowns [Yvonne Arnaud, Guilford]
