Rhinestone Dolly

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"
