The Dolly Parton Story is a two hour journey
through the sensational career of one of
country music’s most successful ladies.
Dolly Parton’s career has spanned over 50
years and her most celebrated material
features in this show, from her early
country classics such as ‘Coat of Many
Colours’ and ‘Joshua’, through to the later
smash hits such as ‘Jolene’, ‘Islands in the
Stream’, ‘I Will Always Love You’ and ‘9 to
Andrea Pattison has been a professional
singer for many years and in that time, many
people have commented on her similarity in
sound and style to Dolly Parton. As a life
long fan of Dolly’s, Andrea always took this
as a huge compliment, but it was only
recently that she decided to use that aspect
of her talent to reach a wider audience.
Now in its fifth year this great show has
built up a huge following around the UK and
will be venturing further in the near
future. With an all live four piece band
providing the sound and an array of amazing,
rhinestone encrusted replica costumes, this
is a real treat for any Dolly Parton fan.
As well as celebrating the life and music of
Dolly Parton, Andrea will be incorporating
her own experiences and music into the show.
Andrea’s first album of original songs
‘Stormy’s Daughter’ was recently released
and one of the songs will feature in the
stage show. Dolly’s influence on Andrea’s
writing and singing is obvious throughout
the album, but especially evident on the
Bluegrass track ‘Nobody’s Baby’ – a
heartfelt recollection of her less than
idyllic early life in Sunderland.
New for Autumn 2015 is the option of having
a special guest on the show, Kenny Rogers.
Covering favourites such as 'Ruby', 'The
Gambler' and 'Lucile'.
