sings Parton – a Sisters Tribute 2016 UK Tour
This wonderful show brings the story of growing up in East Tennessee,
the music and laughter as experienced by the PARTON family. The
show stars Hit Recording Singer/Songwriter and Actress STELLA PARTON,
sister of International Super Star DOLLY PARTON.

STELLA will take
us back to her roots via audio/visual, with stories of her and Dolly
growing up in Tennessee. Performing with her band all her own hits,
which include, “Danger Of A Stranger”, “I Want To Hold You In
My Arms Tonight”,” Standard Lie Number One” and “Undercover
Lovers” to name just a few, plus many of Dolly’s hits, also songs
written by other members of the PARTON family.
didn’t disappoint with an introduction to the show made by Dolly
herself via an audio play on (which was a nice touch).
band started to play the opening number “ Mountain Songbird” the
Title Track to Stella’s latest Album and Stella walked on to a
rapturous applause. Following
on from the opening song and wonderful monologue given by Stella came
a few of Dolly’s Hits which Stella portrayed in her own
arrangements, performing songs such as “Good ole days”, “Jolene”
“Bargain Store” and “Coat of many colours” the latter also
being the US Movie Stella had just starred in and consulted on
playing the role of Corla Bass.
not sure Stella knew what to make of the audience in the first half
as they seemed a little reserved, but I genuinely think that the
auditorium were intent on listening and appreciating each song and
story Stella projected, the concert was very intimate and personal
and the crowd in the most were very mature. If
there were any doubts on the audiences participation they were
certainly banished in the second half, as Stella made the stage her
own with more Dolly songs but much more of her own work which she
seemed to enjoy performing to us, showing us what great work she has
produced and had success with over the years, the theatre responded
with affection and volume. 
times it could have been Dolly up on stage as the Family Tone came
out in certain words and lines during the performance which was
really nice to hear, Stella has the family Comedy Lines down to a tee
too with quotes such as “is it hard filling Dolly’s Shoe’s”
Stella replies “its not her shoes I find hard filling”. The
Band were very professional and UK based which Stella labelled “The
Angels” the Lead guitarist came to the front of stage towards the
end of the show to perform duets including “Islands in the Stream”
and Stella’s own hit “Legs” which was very popular among the
Country Fans. 

was a fulfilling show that does exactly what is says on the tin! If
Dolly catches the show she will be proud of her little sister!
