This was the best Fringe event we attended (and we done a few!).
Such brilliant talents, performed superbly with excellent commentary and banter.
The standing ovation was well deserved!
Hannah Richards is amazing, a real star.
And Alex Beharrell portrayed a musical talent that demonstrated his amusing personality alongside his outstanding playing.
Thank you Night Owls

Great start to our fringe. Superb voices, good chemistry, interesting narrative of Dolly’s career. Made me listen and appreciate the lyrics all the more. Not all the obvious songs played which made for a nice change.

Our first live music event since lockdown and not to be missed. Superb musicians/singers who give great performances of all the favourites (and some lesser known). Nice change from comedy/drama shows at the Fringe (but they're great too!)

Catherine Coutts 45 days ago

Excellent show - recommended! Great banter, but even better musicality and singing - what a lovely voice. Thoroughly enjoyed this whistlestop tour through Dolly's hits.

Get there early - our seats were at the back, so show was slightly spoilt by people thumping past us to the bar and staff talking loudly.

So good to hear live music again!

Arts Reviews Edinburgh (5/5 stars) 38 days ago

On stage it works perfectly and brings moments of humour and lightness to the show, and one thing (well one other thing) Dolly Parton herself has always been well known for is her sense of humour.
