Perth Concert Hall (http://www.horsecross.co.uk/perth-concert-hall), it’s a Thursday evening and a pre concert meal at Perth’s buzzing Cafe Tabou restaurant sets the scene. The crowd is large and the age profile is varied although on the high and grey side. Barbara Dixon, a local in the area, but an artist who has not been to Perth for at least 10 years, she was welcomed enthusiastically by the crowd. The venue is ideal for musical events with acoustics that befits the best of artists. On tour with her band Barbara covers a wide range of songs from many albums and specifically from her recent album Winter. The latest news from Barbara includes:
