In this special acoustic performance, Barbara Dickson and her pianist Nick Holland explore her catalogue of songs at an intimate level. The pair let the words and melodies take centre stage as they perform a wonderful range of material drawing on Barbara’s folk roots, contemporary greats, and some of her classic hits.
Emerging from the Scottish folk scene of the late 1960s Barbara had 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 six platinum, 11 gold and seven 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 won her an Olivier Award for Best Actress. Barbara was awarded an OBE by Her Majesty the Queen in 2002 for her services to music and drama and she continues to record and to play to sold-out audiences.
Nick Holland joined Barbara’s touring band in the mid 2000s playing keyboard and adding vocals on her Full Circle album. Barbara and Nick work as a duo, her playing the guitar and piano and Nick on the keyboard adding harmonies to Barbara’s own wonderful vocals.
