Barbara Dickson and Rab Noakes
Barbara Dickson and Rab Noakes have been friends since they were teenagers, singing and playing in venues around Scotland. As separate acts they often found themselves performing alongside each other (and other musical luminaries) creating a lifetime bond. Subsequently, they have ‘occasionally’ performed live, sang on each other’s records and remained friends for over 40 years. Both have diverse careers and have won awards and praise for their solo work in many fields. In recent years they reunited to perform a wonderful blend of folk songs, classic pop influences and self written favourites. Rab’s continuing reputation as one of Scotland’s finest singer-songwriters and Barbara’s skills as an interpreter of new and traditional songs provide an enviable platform for this unique show. The pair share common ground with their respect for artists such as Dylan, Beatles and the Everly Brothers which when mixed with their experiences of the folk revival of the 1960s and beyond, create a stage show they are keen to share – and are delighted to be ‘going on the road’ together.
