Dolly Parton Does Dublin

By Irish America Staff
December / January 2003

Country and Western star Dolly Parton visited Dublin recently in advance of her concert in the city on November 29th. Parton made an hour-long appearance at the HMV music store on Grafton Street, promoting her concerts the old-fashioned way by mixing and mingling with fans who turned up to purchase autographed copies of her new bluegrass CD Haloes and Horns and catch a glimpse of that famous face and body. Dressed in a form-fitting cowgirl outfit, Parton didn’t disappoint and happily played to the crowd, posing for photos and accepting gifts from her Irish fan base. Parton will play Belfast on November 23rd. ♦
