The story of Dolly

ANDREA Pattison has been a professional singer for many years, mainly performing at weddings and functions.

In that time, many people have commented on her similarity in sound and style to Dolly Parton, and you can find out for yourself on Saturday, May 21 when she performs in the Dolly Parton Story at the Webster Memorial Theatre, Arbroath.

As a life long fan of Dolly’s, Andrea always took this as a huge compliment, but it was only recently that she has decided to use that aspect of her talent to reach a wider audience.

A new band was formed featuring some of the most capable and experienced musicians in the North East. Andrea and the band recorded a CD of Dolly’s best loved material, designed a website, picked the songs for the show and then started taking bookings for local theatres and venues.

Andrea is able to closely mimic Dolly’s unmistakable sound and phrasing, as well as her renowned onstage wit and charm.

All of Dolly’s most celebrated material features in the show, from her early country classics such as “Coat of Many Colours” and “Applejack”, through to the later smash hits such as “Jolene”, “Islands in the Stream”, “I Will Always Love You” and “9 to 5”.
