A POPULAR tribute to country singer Dolly Parton will take the stage at Settle Victoria Hall in April.

The glittering show features the lead vocals of Andrea Pattison, who closely mimics Dolly’s unmistakable sound and phrasing, as well as her renowned onstage wit and charm.

The Dolly Parton Story is a two-hour journey through the 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 5.

The show also includes tracks from Dolly’s new albums Joyful Noise and Blue Smoke.

Now in its seventh year the show has built up a huge following around the UK.

With an array of rhinestone encrusted replica costumes, it promises to be a real treat for any Dolly Parton fan.

As well as celebrating the life and music of Dolly Parton, Andrea will incorporate 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.

The Settle performance of the Dolly Parton Story will be held at 8pm on Saturday, April 1.

Doors open at 7.15pm and all tickets cost £15.
