A very special Petworth evening in the company of Barbara Dickson and her pianist Nick Holland. The duo let the words and melodies take centre stage as they perform material drawing on Barbara’s folk roots, contemporary greats, and some of her classic hits.
Barbara emerged from the Scottish folk scene of the late 1960s and has enjoyed mainstream chart success with hits including Answer Me, Another Suitcase in Another Hall, Caravan and the million-selling number one single, I Know Him So Well. As Scotland’s best-selling female album artist she has earned 6 platinum, 11 gold and 7 silver albums and cemented her status as one of the UK’s best-loved performers. Her stage career has included the roles of the original Mrs Johnstone in Willy Russell’s long-running musical, Blood Brothers and as Viv Nicholson in Spend Spend Spend, both of which have won her an Olivier award for Best Actress. Barbara was awarded an O.B.E. in the 2002 New Year's Honours for her services to music and drama.
With support from Edwina Hayes, the Yorkshire-based singer songwriter described by the country music legend Nanci Griffith as “the sweetest voice in England.”
