The Divine Dusty – the Dusty Springfield Songbook
Mary Isobel Catherine Bernadette O’Brien OBE was born on 16th April 1939. To you and I she is, and always will be, Dusty Springfield. Her distinctive sound and peroxide blonde bouffant hair made her an icon of the swinging sixties. She is consistently named amongst the best female rock artists of all time and here is why – “Wishin’ and Hopin’ “, “I Just Don’t Know What to Do with Myself”, “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me”, and, of course, “Son of a Preacher Man”. This is no tribute act – our cast of three will not only be delving into the musical archive of the divine Dusty but also telling you a little bit about her extraordinary private life.
