Dolly Parton - Kelly

The Dolly Show is an exceptional Dolly Parton experience and one of the world’s best tributes. West End star Kelly O’Brien performs the beloved hits of country legend Dolly Parton – from Jolene to I Will Always Love You. This unrivalled 5-star show pays homage to Dolly while brilliantly recreating the vitality, voice, style, and humour of the little lady from Tennessee.

 When Dolly toured the UK in 2011, the pair met at London’s O2 Arena.

 Kelly looks just like Dolly and she sounds just like Dolly. She is one of the world’s best tribute acts, according to the BBC. Kelly started out as a country singer, winning the Australian National Country Muster talent contest in 1995. She is the only Dolly Parton impersonator to be a finalist in the Dolly Parton challenge and to be invited to sing with Dolly’s band in Nashville, Tennessee. Kelly has won many awards in her long career, including the U.K National Tribute Awards – for 4 consecutive years. Kelly has performed as Dolly across the UK and around the world. Performance venues include the Singapore Grand Prix, Hammersmith Apollo, Ascot Racecourse, Adelaide vineyards, Barbados beaches to Barcelona Pride. Clients of this extraordinary Dolly Parton tribute act include Green Flag, P&O, Ministry of Sound, Specsavers, Amsterdam Pride and ITV.

Kelly has a background in musical theatre, pop and jazz. Her credits include the role of Dinah in Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s 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. Kelly has spent years honing her show, working extremely hard to make sure it is the best it can be. Kelly has even serenaded Glastonbury festival goers as they made their way to see Dolly.

Outfits - The Dolly Show recreates iconic Dolly Parton outfits – including the white waistcoat suit that Dolly wore to Glastonbury in 2014, the turquoise dress that Dolly sported when she performed at the 02 Arena in 2008, and the white lace dress that she wore to the 61st Grammy Awards.

Venues - Kelly performs as Dolly solo or with a Dolly Parton tribute band for private and corporate clients, as well as in cabaret venues and theatres around the world. Her Dolly Shows at the famous Crazy Coqs cabaret in London’s West End are always a sell-out.

Dolly and Kenny - She regularly teams up with the exceptional Kenny Rogers tribute and impersonator Peter White to provide the ultimate Dolly and Kenny show, which always features their famous duet ‘Islands in the Stream'
