The Shock of the Old

BY TERENCE BLACKER.
4 July 2021

Overview

“With a whoop and a holler and a hallelujah, let’s dance to the music of time.”

Getting old is not what it used to be. Denial is in, the dignity of age is out. There simply is no place for bedroom slippers by the fire… Combining irreverence with a more reflective look at regret, memory and love, Terence Blacker adds his own witty musical take to the ageing process in The Shock of the Old. A life-enhancing celebration of the joys and pains of getting on - about being, in the words of one of Blacker’s songs,  ‘not quite done’. 

Terence Blacker is a songwriter, columnist and award-winning author. His most recent CD Playing For Time was selected by the Sunday Times as one of the Top 100 Albums of 2020.
