  • Settle Victoria Hall 24 Kirkgate Settle, England, BD24 9DZ United Kingdom (map)


The Musical Journey from the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee to The Pyramid Stage of Glastonbury 

With Special Guest Star ‘The Rhinestone Cowboy’ – Glen Campbell


This acclaimed two-hour show quite simply redefines the word crowdpleaser. Performed by Julia Martin and Ian Houghton, this production pays tribute to the musical journey of the queen of country music 'Dolly Parton', accompanied by the legendary Rhinestone Cowboy, Glen Campbell.

With vocals direct from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Tennessee, mannerisms that are 'Pure Dolly' and a stage presence that commands the room, Julia weaves her magic and delivers a show that makes you feel that Dolly herself is actually in the theatre. This foot stomping, hand clapping production, captures the audience from start to finish, combining classic hit songs, unique one-liners, and sensational duets, into a spectacular sound, light and visual theatre performance. With the help of Glen Campbell, this show brings-to-life the inspirational story of Dolly Rebecca Parton, and takes the audience from Dolly’s humble beginnings in Locust Ridge, Tennessee, to the superstar that she is today. 

If you missed Dolly’s epic sublime concert from the pyramid stage of Glastonbury, then this is your chance to experience it. During part two of the show, Julia, wearing a replica white rhinestone studded trouser suit recaptures Dolly’s epic performance. Clap-along, sing-along, and dancing in the aisles is the order of the day, it is quite simply ‘Glastonbury Magic’, but without the mud.




Dolly Parton and the late Glen Campbell have both been inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, and they have enjoyed many years of international acclaim. With a combined total of 34 No1 hit singles, the audience can be assured of listening to some of the greatest country songs of all times. Songs Include:

9-5, Coat Of Many Colors, Jolene, I Will Always Love You, Here You Come Again, Little Sparrow, Two Doors Down, and Blue Smoke, are just a selection of Dolly’s greatest hits.

Gentle On My Mind, By The Time I Get To Phoenix, Wichita Lineman, Galveston, Southern Nights, and Rhinestone Cowboy, are just a selection of Glen’s greatest hits.
