As a multi-million selling recording artist, with an equally impressive Olivier Award-winning acting career, Barbara Dickson OBE has firmly established herself as one of the most enduring and popular entertainers in Britain today.

She is coming to Linlithgow on Saturday 23rd May for a Gala Concert in the Academy Theatre from 7pm.

Barbara Dickson emerged from the Scottish Folk Revival of the 1960s and has become the biggest-selling Scottish female artiste of all time.  Known to a wider audience in the 1970s and 1980s, with hits including Answer Me, Another suitcase in another hall, The Caravan Song and I know him so well, she enjoyed ten years of chart success as a pop star.

As an actress, she has appeared in award-winning theatre productions John, Paul, George, Ringo and Bert, and Spend, Spend, Spend. In Willy Russell’s Blood Brothers, she was the original Mrs Johnstone and the author’s muse.

Barbara has returned to her roots once again, after a musical odyssey of 40 years creating music, playing guitar and piano, acting and song writing and the concert with Nick Holland in Linlithgow on May 23rd is a culmination of her journey so far.

Asked what the highlight of her career has been, she says, “I don’t know. It hasn’t happened yet!”

Support will be by the Duncan McCrone Band.
