Dooley's Hotel, Waterford, Ireland – Tickets €28.00
Artist Barbara Dickson
Venue Theatre Royal Waterford
Date Saturday 12th November
From the Scottish Folk Scene of the 1960s to her performance at the Royal Albert Hall, London; Barbara Dickson has captivated audiences with her soulful renditions of material from the traditional songs of her native Scotland to her outstanding musical theatre roles. Respected by her peers, the accolades flow, the late Gerry Rafferty said her version of ‘The Right Moment’ was his favourite cover of any song he’d written; Troy Donockley, with whom she records and creates work with, said she stands alone in her commitment to the truth in song; Aly Bain describing her voice as the best to come out of Scotland. The multi award winning performer modestly says of herself ‘I have been touched with a gift that is of great importance to me, one I wish to share with everyone.’ ‘It’s not about technique’ she says, ‘but what is in your heart. That is the secret.’ Barbara’s special guest is Anthony Toner. Currently working on new material for his seventh album, Anthony has been described as John Prine meets James Taylor in a second hand book shop.
