Crazy Coqs Presents Kate Dimbleby in THE DORY PREVIN STORY, 6/24-26
In this highly commended show, the aacclaimed singer and storyteller Kate Dimbleby, accompanied by Naadia Sheriff on piano, explores the extraordinary songbook & life story of cult favourite Dory Previn, the queen of 70's confessional songwriters who died on Valentine's Day 2012, 40 years after the release of her most successful album Mythical Kings and Iguanas. Kate & Naadia roam freely across great songs from the heart, songs of emancipation, sweet revenge and the life of a vastly under-appreciated songwriter with a relevant story for today.
A national radio regular and with several albums to her credit, including the hit Songs of Dory Previn, Kate Dimbleby has been described by The Times as 'One of the most versatile singers on the jazz/blues circuit'. A natural born performer and drawn to music from a young age, she grew up in a family where performing was the norm. Her father is the broadcaster David Dimbleby and her mother was a trained classical singer. Her uncle on her mother's side played jazz piano, trumpet and blues harp, and inspired her with his collection of gramophone records.
Kate will be taking her show to New York later this year.
