The headline acts for the Saturday night concert at this year's Maidenhead Festival have been announced.
The audience for the free concert in Kidwells Park will be able to enjoy the music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons as well as the biggest hits of Dolly Parton, in the form of two top tribute acts.
Appearing will be The Dolly Parton Story and Big Girls Don’t Cry. Also on the bill will be Maidenhead’s favourite resident entertainer, perma-tanned Kevin Cruise – AKA Martin Cabble-Reid.
The Dolly Parton Story is fronted by Andrea Pattison, a professional singer and the UK's finest Dolly Parton impersonator.
Performing music from the hit musical Jersey Boys, Big Girls Don't Cry features four phenomenal singers and a fantastic live band.
A veteran of the cabaret circuit and Britain's Got Talent, Kevin Cruise is also a regular favourite in panto in Windsor.
The three acts will be on stage on Saturday, July 23, with the music followed by a spectacular fireworks display.
Festival entertainment organiser Carly Kenny said: “We’re excited we’re able to bring these fantastic musicians to the stage at Maidenhead Festival, and of course we’re looking forward to seeing the popular Kevin Cruise back with us again.”
The three acts will close a day of musical entertainment featuring a huge range of local musicians and bands.
