EUROPE’S leading tribute act to the Queen of Country is heading to Thurrock in October.

Sarah Jayne, who has been performing as Dolly Parton for more than 22 years, is set to take the stage at Circus Tavern, Meads Corner, Purfleet.

The popular tribute artist will be joined by the award-winning vocal impersonator, Andy Crust, to host Country Superstars – Dolly Parton and Friends.

Together, the duo will bring the history of country music back to life by visiting some of the most influential country musicians ever.

The show also features the music of other top country stars, including Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Billie Jo Spears, Kenny Rogers, Willie Nelson and John Denver.

A spokesman for the agency Actz Entertainment said: “Each artist not only looks and sounds like the country star they portray, these professional performers transform themselves through hours of practice at their craft.

“Every detail is taken into consideration, from script, choice of songs, hair, make-up and mannerisms, to professional costumes and props.”

The show takes place on Saturday, October 11.

Tickets are £17.50 per person, which includes a two course meal.
