Two new concert dates featuring Barbara and Rab have just been announced.
Barbara will play two live shows alongside Rab Noakes in September, at the Spree Festival in Paisley on September 7th and in Crail on the 8th.
Barbara and Rab have been friends since they were teenagers, singing and playing in venues around Scotland.
As separate acts they often found themselves performing alongside each other (and other musical luminaries) creating a lifetime bond. Subsequently, they have occasionally performed live together, sang on each other’s records and have remained friends for over 40 years.
Both have diverse careers and have won awards and praise for their solo work in many fields.
In recent years they reunited to perform a wonderful blend of folk songs, classic pop influences and self written favourites. Rab’s continuing reputation as one of Scotland’s finest singer-songwriters and Barbara’s skills as an interpreter of new and traditional songs provide an enviable platform for this unique show.
The pair share common ground with their respect for artists such as Bob Dylan, The Beatles and the Everly Brothers which, when mixed with their experiences of the folk revival of the 1960s and beyond, create a stage show they are keen to share – and they are delighted to be going on the road together.
