Dolly Diamond In 'Parton Me'
The Queen of Cabaret meets the Queen of CountryPresented by: Boroondara Arts
Fri - Sat 8pm
Dolly Parton, the queen of country music has had a career in music for over 50 years and 'Parton Me' is a tribute to this iconic woman from the one and only Dolly Diamond.
Performed in the historic and beautiful Kew Court House, this intimate music venue is the perfect setting to enjoy Dolly's brand new show.
Dolly Rebecca Parton (born January 19, 1946) is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, actress, author, businesswoman, philanthropist and a country music legend. Parton is the most honoured female country performer of all time... and every song tells its own unique story.
Dolly Diamond has performed the songs of many artists over the years but none have resonated quite so much as the legend that is Dolly Parton.
This world premiere sees Dolly Diamond perform her favourite Dolly Parton songs and share a few of her favourite Dolly stories... as only she can do. Parton Me features a star-studded creative team, with musical director Shanon Whitelock on piano and Caleb Garfinkel on guitar.
Dolly Diamond says "I grew up listening to Dolly Parton and I thank my mother for that. There's an emotional connection to her music for me that I really don't get with too many other singers. A lady that writes her own songs and has stayed true to who she is for all this time is nothing short of miraculous in this business. I'm not trying to impersonate anyone, just show them the love and respect they deserve."
