Dillie Keane 'Songs My Mother Would Have Hated'The Pheasantry, SW3 4UT , [Venue Details]
Dillie’s mother, now long gone to join the Choir Invisible, despaired of her daughter. “Don’t sing those awful songs, you’ll never find a husband!” she said over and over. Her mother was right.
Now at an age when most of her contemporaries are enjoying their leisure and spending their children’s inheritance, she’s working as hard as ever. Back with a new(ish) collection of songs culled from various sources, she continues to behave badly and sing about it. So if you’re passing by Shankhill Cemetery which is just south of Dublin, and you hear a curious whirring sound, it’s her mother. A better plan, however, is to come and see her show.
Dillie Keane is best known as one third of the satirical trio, Fascinating Aïda.
The bare bones of her life are these. Born Portsmouth 1952. Father a much-loved local GP. Three older, delightful siblings who have done nothing but grace the name of Keane and distinguish themselves in every way. Family despaired of Dillie ever conforming.
