SPRINGS INTO ACTION
WITH HER SOLO SHOW – HER FIRST FOR 557 YEARS!
TOURING THE UK FROM FEBRUARY
After celebrating 30 years of Fascinating Aida, Dillie Keane is taking a short break from her gal pals to bring audiences around the country her solo show, written by her and Adèle Anderson, which she debuted at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015. Dillie will tour the UK from 10 February until 24 March 2016, accompanied on the piano by Michael Roulston: dates and booking info here: http://www.fascinatingaida.co.uk/tour_dates
With brand new tunes, grand old favourites, gorgeous songs of love and hilarious songs of utter wickedness, Dillie will break your heart, mend it again and have it sent to the cleaners for pressing.
And she’ll give you her recipe for chutney while she’s at it..
As founding member of Fascinating Aida, Dillie has amassed over 17 million hits on Youtube for their charming and now infamous takes on a variety of topics from Cheap Flights to OFSTED to Dillie’s notorious ode to dogging, which itself has reached 2 million hits so far.
“Keane, whose piano playing remains as sprightly and inventive as ever, prompts gales of laughter with merely the raising of a quizzical eyebrow.”
Dillie says “I think I must be descended from a long line of itinerants, because there’s nothing makes me happier than hitting the road again. And I’m delighted my little show is getting a longer shelf life and I’ve got a chance to do it in the places I love – our British provincial towns. (You can take a chanteuse out of the provinces… etc.) You see, I only decided to do the show because my dear old pal and colleague from Fascinating Aïda, Adèle Anderson, wanted to go on holiday to North Korea. (Dear God… don’t ask…) I couldn’t bear the idea of sitting home twiddling my thumbs.
Things didn’t turn out quite as planned. I was rehearsing the show when we got the news that she was not heading East at all. Instead, she’s taken a detour through the North Korea of Poorliness, travelling via the chemo day clinic and the hospital ward, poor love. So I suddenly found myself doing the show for rather longer than planned.
So, buoyed with the happiness of this result, I can set off on the road once more in the knowledge that she’s getting back to full strength again for Fascinating Aïda’s full time return in 2017.
I am also delighted to be touring with the exceptionally talented Michael Roulston, well known (and much in demand) on the cabaret circuit in London.”
