Scottish civil service employee, folk singer, musical stage actress and concert performer. At the age of 21, Dickson took off six weeks from her civil service job and left for Denmark on a singing engagement. In 1973, she received her first big break in the stage musical, "John, Paul, George, Ringo and Bert." She hit the charts with a No.1 hit in February 1985 with "I Know Him So Well," another chart hit in January 1996 and again in February 1997. Dickson gained kudos for her continuing lead role in the stage production of "Blood Brothers," receiving a Best Actress in a Musical from the Society of West End Theatres, 1983. Moving into TV acting, she starred in the "Band of Gold," 1995-96 and "Taggart." Her enduring popularity has made her a regular concert performer, even though she is known for being very private and shy in person.
