Barbara Dickson
& Nick Holland

supported by singer-songwriter Edwina Hayes

The multi-million selling recording artist and award-winning actress is a very special performer. She returns to the New Vic with pianist Nick Holland for an acoustic show drawing on her folk roots, contemporary greats, and some of her classic hits.

Emerging from the Scottish folk scene of the late 1960’s, Barbara has 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 6 platinum, 11 gold and 7 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 have won her Olivier Awards for Best Actress.

Nick Holland joined Barbara’s touring band in the mid 2000’s playing keyboards. They recently started working as a duo with Barbara playing guitar and piano, and Nick on keyboards – and adding harmonies to Barbara’s own wonderful vocals.
