From her roots in the Scottish folk scene of the late 1960’s through to mainstream chart success with hits including ‘Answer Me’, ‘Another Suitcase in Another Hall’, ‘Caravans’, ‘January, February’ and the million-selling number one single, ‘I Know Him So Well’, Barbara Dickson has long since cemented her status as one of the UK’s best-loved performers.
As Scotland’s best-selling female album artist she has earned 6 platinum, 11 gold and 7 silver albums. 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 an Olivier award for ‘Best Actress’. Barbara was awarded an O.B.E. by Her Majesty the Queen in the 2002 New Year’s Honours for her services to music and drama and, with a new album of the songs of Gerry Rafferty due later this year, she continues to record and to play to sold-out audiences throughout the UK.
