Barbara Dickson & Rab Noakes

Barbara Dickson and Rab Noakes have been friends since they were 17 years old. When young, they sang and played together frequently as part of various line-ups. Now, they’ve reunited to play acoustic concerts and festivals where they will sing songs from traditional to 20th-21st Century, each chosen for meaning in both repertoires. Rab’s continuing reputation as a fine singer-songwriter and Barbara’s as an interpreter of new and traditional songs with a contemporary edge will be their aim. They came from the folk revival of the 1960s and their quality is rooted there. They are delighted to be ‘going on the road’ together after so long.

Support comes from Holly Taymar & Chris Bilton.

Seats in the front three rows £24, with all seats behind £23.
