“One of the world’s
best tribute artists.”
The Ultimate Dolly Parton tribute
With The Dolly Show, Kelly O’Brien has established one of the world’s leading Dolly Parton tribute acts.
Australian born singer and comedian, Kelly began singing country music at the age of 14 and has worked in musical theatre, pop, jazz and dance.
Her theatre and TV credits include: Starlight Express, Tonight’s The Night, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Good Morning Australia, Popstars, How To Look Good Naked, X Factor, and more recently BBC ONE’s Even Better Than The Real Thing.
She returns to her first love with the ultimate Dolly Parton tribute.
Kelly explains: “I have been performing as Dolly Parton since 2008. I was working with a band in London and every time I sang 9 to 5 people told me how much I sounded like Dolly.
“A friend asked me if I would perform as a Dolly Parton tribute at her brother’s birthday party. I was very nervous, but it was a big hit.
“The show was born, and I have spent years honing it into the world’s best Dolly Parton tribute show. I still work very hard to make sure it’s the best it can be.”
Kelly now performs her Dolly Parton tribute act across the UK and around the world, from the Singapore Grand Prix to Hammersmith Apollo, Ascot Racecourse to Adelaide vineyards, Barbados beaches to Barcelona Pride.
Kelly has won many awards in her long career, including the U.K National Tribute Awards – for 4 years running.
Kelly is ferocious!”
