Barbara Dickson was born in Dunfermline, Scotland. Her singing career started in folk clubs around her native Fife in the sixties, exposing her to a rich combination of traditional and contemporary music. In the early seventies, she sang at a Liverpool folk club run by a young student teacher called Willy Russell. He showed Barbara the first draft of what would later become the award winning musical, ‘John, Paul, George, Ringo....and Bert' and asked her to perform the music. The combination of fine writing, a superb cast of young unknowns, (including Antony Sher, Bernard Hill and Trevor Eve) and Barbara's idiosyncratic interpretation of Beatles songs made the show hugely successful. During the seventies and eighties Barbara Dickson enjoyed huge success in both the pop field and also moved into acting and was featured in a number of high profile stage and television productions. In the late nineties Barbara met with Troy Donockley and the pair made plans to work with each other. This collaboration first came to bear fruit on the album Full Circle and again more recently on the Time and Tide album. Full Circle marked the beginning of a professional relationship with multi instrumentalist and producer Troy Donockley. Troy is also a key member of Barbara Dickson's touring band. The album was first released in 2004. The album features the tracks Faithless Love, Corpus Christi Carol and The Sky Above The Roof, with the last two songs becoming concert favourites on Barbara's recent tours. In addition to performing on the album Troy Donockley also produced the album. There are also musical contributions from the renowned bassist Danny Thompson.
