Friends since they were teenagers, two key performers will be stopping off in Lancaster when they go on the road together.

As separate acts, in their younger days Barbara Dickson and Rab Noakes often found themselves performing alongside each other.

Since then they have occasionally performed live together, sung on each other’s records and remained friends.

Both have diverse careers and have won awards and praise for their solo work.

From her folk scene roots of the late 1960s through to mainstream chart success with hits including ‘Another Suitcase in Another Hall’, ‘January, February’ and the million-selling number one single, ‘I Know Him So Well’, Barbara Dickson is one of the UK’s best-loved performers.

Rab Noakes emerged as a key player in one of the early waves of singer-songwriters in the 1970s. Since then he has enjoyed an illustrious musical life including being a member of Stealers Wheel, writing songs for hit-makers Lindisfarne, and regular appearances on iconic shows such as John Peel and The Old Grey Whistle Test.

Now the two have reunited to perform a blend of folk songs, classic pop influences and self-written favourites.

Catch them at Lancaster’s Grand Theatre on June 13, 7.30pm.

Tickets priced £22/£21 concessions are available from the box office on 01524 64695.
