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 1960’s 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 6 platinum, 11 gold and 7 silver albums and cemented her status as one of the UK’s best-loved performers.

Nick Holland joined Barbara’s touring band in the mid 2000’s playing keyboards and adding vocals on her Full Circle album, the first to feature the style of music she now performs. Barbara and Nick work as a duo where she plays guitar and piano, and Nick on keyboards –and adding harmonies to Barbara’s own wonderful vocals.
