Diamond Dolly - Lallie

Born and bred in the Deep South (of England), Lallie was brought up on the sounds of Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn & Johnny Cash. She started out singing classically and won a scholarship to study at Eton College aged 15.

Since then, Lallie has worked with many different professional tribute and function bands. She has worked with ABBA, Blondie & Madonna tributes and regularly sings backing vocals for The Pink Tribute Band. Her other project, a 1940s girl harmony duo, The Air Raid Sirens is currently enjoying astounding success. She has performed to audiences of thousands and also in smaller intimate venues. Despite a fulfilling singing career, Lallie has always felt most authentic when singing Country & Folk Music.

Becoming Dolly has been a dream come true for Lallie, who has worked hard at imitating every nuance and rhinestone - even down to studying Dolly's Tennessee drawl in minute detail. Lallie performs with the heart and spirit of Dolly Parton like you've never seen before.

In Lallie's own words: "It's been a huge privilege to bring the First Lady of Country Music to life. Dolly isn't just a singer/ songwriter - she's a role model, feminist & a businesswoman with the ability to laugh at herself. My show brings the very essence of this amazing lady to the fore"

He taught himself pedal steel guitar as a teenager and shortly afterwards went on to play with Medicine Bow, one of the most renowned country bands the UK has ever produced. He toured the USA and appeared at the Wembley Arena International festival with the Bow before moving on to a successful career as a critically acclaimed guitarist, singer and songwriter.
