BARBARA DICKSON – YOU KOW HER SO WELL!

Award-winning Scottish singer and actress Barbara Dickson is coming to The Park & Dare Theatre Treorchy on Saturday 30 September as part of her UK tour.

One of Scotland's most successful singers, Barbara Dickson and acclaimed pianist Nick Holland perform a special acoustic set exploring her vast catalogue of songs at an intimate level.

 

The pair let the words and melodies take centre stage as they perform a breathtaking range of material drawing on her folk roots, contemporary greats and some of her classic hits.

 

One of UK's best-loved performers, Barbara has been awarded an O.B.E for her services to music and drama, won two Olivier Awards for Best Actress, and is Scotland's best-selling female album artist.

 

Nick Holland joined Barbara’s touring band in the mid 2000’s playing keyboards and adding vocals on her ’Full Circle’ album, the first to feature the style of music she now performs. Barbara and Nick recently started working as a ’duo’ where she plays guitar and piano, and Nick on keyboards and adding harmonies to Barbara’s own wonderful vocals.

 

They have developed an intimate rapport with each other and the audience.

 

’It’s a different experience to working with the bigger band,’ says Barbara, ’but just as enjoyable and gives the music breathing space.’

 

 

Barbara Dickson will perform at the Park & Dare Theatre, Treorchy on Saturday 30 September 7.30pm Tickets cost £22 and are available from the Box Office on 03000 040 444 or online at www.rct-theatres.co.uk.
