Barbara Dickson Joins The Pars Supporters Trust

One of Dunfermline’s most famous daughters, Barbara Dickson OBE, interrupted the preparations for her show at Rothes Halls, Glenrothes on Thursday evening in order to accept her membership certificate of the Pars Supporters’ Trust (PST). 

The singer had earlier donated money towards the campaign to help save her hometown football club, Dunfermline Athletic and representatives from the PST took the opportunity to meet with her ahead of the sell out performance to thank her personally for the contribution.

Barbara recalled fondly, her father taking her along to matches at East End Park as a youngster from their home in Rosyth. She said “I’m honoured to become a member of the Pars Supporters’ Trust and I’m delighted that the fans have been successful in buying the Club”. Although she no longer lives in the area, Barbara is still kept up to date with the goings on in Dunfermline by relatives in neighbouring Limekilns.

The Fife concert marked the midway point of a 25 date UK tour which began in Harlow on October 9th and culminates in Birmingham on November 10th.

...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
