TURNING 66 later this month, Dolly Parton remains as big a star as ever in her 57-year career.
Her continued popularity is reflected in the fifth anniversary tour of Dolly, the Show, which celebrates the music of the award-winning singer, composer, actress and author from her early days to her arena concerts.
The two-hour show features a full cast of singers, and Dolly Mixture dancers, and comes to the Buccleuch Centre in Langholm on Friday, January 27.
Parton’s music is performed by acclaimed country singer Jeanne Jordan, who was intrtoduced to country music by the Bee Gees. While living in Los Angeles, she was present at many recording sessions including the recording of the worldwide hit by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers, Islands in the Stream, which was written and produced by the Gibb brothers.
A spokesperson for the show said: “Jeanne is no stranger to portraying Dolly and is sure to impress with her vocal talent and charisma – not to mention her Dolly-like assets!”
All Dolly’s big hits will be included including 9 to 5, I Will Always Love You, Jolene, Here You Come Again and Coat of Many Colours.
Dolly, The Show starts at 7.30pm and tickets cost £19 (£18 concessions) from 01387 381196.
