The Singing Sixties with Barbara Dickson and Friends
Posted: 27th March 2019
The Queen’s Hall, Edinburgh - Monday 12th August 2019, 8:00pm
Featuring Barbara Dickson, Archie Fisher, Adam McNaughton, Dick Gaughan, Sangsters, Iain Rankin, the award-winning Far, Far From Ypres choir plus superb surprise guests.
Forty Scottish folk star singers, sitting at tables positioned on the stage, rolling back the years with a singing session of over twenty songs, based on the sessions of the 1960s. Party time!
The Singing Sixties celebrates the ‘60s folk choruses when Sandy Bell’s Bar, and bars like it in Scotland, attracted world-famous musicians to join locals in mighty harmony.
If you were around then and can’t remember that era, you were probably in Sandy Bell’s bar with that lot, singing just for the joy of it. Many classic traditional and contemporary chorus songs will be reprised and you’re invited to join in.
