Description

After her wonderful Misty Moon gig in 2016, we are so proud to be bringing Dana back to The Cinema Museum.

Dana Gillespie is a British actress, singer and songwriter. Performing and recording from her teens, she has been involved in over 45 albums. Her musical output progressed from teen pop and folk in the early part of her career, to rock in the 1970s and, more recently, the blues. She has also appeared in stage productions and several films.

She recorded initially in the folk genre in the mid-1960s. Some of her recordings as a teenager fell into the teen pop category, such as her 1965 single, Thank You Boy, written by John Carter and Ken Lewis and produced by Jimmy Page. After performing backing vocals on the track It Ain’t Easy from David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, she recorded an album produced by Bowie and Mick Ronson in 1973, Weren’t Born a Man. Subsequent recordings have been in the blues genre, appearing with the London Blues Band.

She is a follower of the Indian spiritual guru Sri Sathya Sai Baba and has performed at his Indian ashram on various occasions. She has also recorded thirteen bhajan-based albums in Sanskrit. Dana is the organiser of an annual 15-day blues festival on Mustique in the Caribbean. Now in its 18th year, it’s hosted many top blues artists and celebrity guests – including Mick Jagger.

Dana’s acting career took off in the late 1960s. Notably, she performed as Mary Magdalene in the first London production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Jesus Christ Superstar, which opened at the Palace Theatre in 1972.

After the Q&A, Dana will be taking part in a paid signing.

Doors open at 18.30, for a 19.30 start.

Refreshments will be available in our licensed cafe/bar.
