BARBARA DICKSON, O.B.E. emerged from the Scottish Folk Revival of the 1960s and has become the biggest selling Scottish female album 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 the award winning theatre productions, ‘John, Paul, George, Ringo and Bert’, ‘Blood Brothers’ and ‘Spend, Spend, Spend’. She was the original Mrs Johnstone in ‘Blood Brothers’ and Willy Russell’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 songwriting and tonight is the culmination of her journey thus far.
She has a particular fondness for Ireland and infrequently plays in concert there, so it’s with great pleasure that she is embarking on her tour this autumn.
Asked what the highlight of her career has been, she says, ‘I don’t know. It hasn’t happened yet!’
