“Her worldview is laconic, her lyrics lacerating, her voice now capable of going deeper than a Chilean miner.”
“Keane, whose piano-playing remains as sprightly and inventive as ever, prompts gales of laughter with merely the raising of a quizzical eyebrow.”
“Exudes faded glamour, a bit like Brighton sea front”

TWO TURTLE DOVES…
Yes, it’s that ‘Christmas show again!’. What better way to get into the tinselly mood than by coming to see me and my pal Barb Jungr in TWO TURTLE DOVES, our perfectly adorable little seasonal show! This year, we’ve teamed up with Tony Award Winner, Sarah Travis as our musical director. Lucky us… !
It’s stuffed like a turkey with festive cheer and improbable songs that we guarantee you will never have heard before. So forget the cheesy stuff you hear piped in the supermarket, the lift, the shops, the adverts, this is a fabulous collection of songs that will make you fall in love with Christmas all over again.
Scroll down for venues! We may well be coming to a theatre near you!
“The wonderful Dillie Keane wears her genius lightly.”
“Life, love and the songwriting process are celebrated in this richly layered cabaret.”
“A rare performer who can produce sharp, piercing satire and deliver heartbreaking songs with élan.”
In addition, I have been burnishing my credentials as an armchair ecowarrior. As a result of my blog (click on the link to find out more, if you don’t know it already) brought me to the attention of the London South Bank University and I was asked to give the opening Keynote speech at their recent online event on Climate Change and Sustainability. I know some pals had difficulty logging on and have asked me if they can view the speech. It’s here on YouTube – my contribution starts at about 23:45 – but there are a lot of interesting speakers so don’t just watch me!
Thanks so much – and stay safe.
