EUROPE’s leading tribute act to the Queen of Country, Dolly Parton, is heading north next summer for one of the biggest events the Shetland Country Music Club (SCMC) has ever hosted.
Tickets for the Shetland Country Superstars show are now available from High Level Music, and make the perfect Christmas present, according to the local country music club.
Appearing at the Clickimin Centre’s Bowls Hall on 12 July next year will be Sarah Jayne, who has been performing as Dolly Parton for over 25 years, as well as vocal impersonator Andy Crust and the Tennessee Allstar Band.
The show will feature music by Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Billie Jo Spears, Kenny Rogers, Willie Nelson, Tammy Wynette, Garth Brooks, John Denver and Glen Campbell.
A spokeswoman for the SCMC said: “Each artist not only looks and sounds like the country star they portray, these professional performers transform themselves through hours of practice at their craft.
“Every detail is taken into consideration from script, choice of songs, hair, make-up and mannerisms, as well as professional costumes.
“Kenny Rogers himself stated on his website that Sarah Jayne and Andy Crust’s Tribute To Kenny and Dolly is Europe’s leading tribute act.”
Tickets are £25 (£23 for country club members) and £10 for under 13’s.
