Acclaimed singer and storyteller Kate Dimbleby accompanied by Naadia Sheriff on piano and vocals, explore the extraordinary songbook & life of cult '70s songwriter Dory Previn.

From a traumatic childhood to Hollywood scandal and her subsequent mental breakdown, Dory used music to write herself sane and sought solace in uncompromising tales of love and loneliness. Including Lady with the Braid, Beware of Young Girls and Did Jesus Have a Baby Sister?, this tender look at Dory's fascinating life, and the music that marked it, showcases her little-known musical legacy of stunning songs that will resonate with all who hear them.
