The Woodside Hotel in Aberdour has unveiled another top live gig.

Mari Wilson is the latest big name to make their way to the village venue.

The 1980s chart star – best remembered for her huge hit ‘Just What I Always Wanted’ and her beehive 1960s look – plays a live set at the Woodside on Wednesday, June 5.

The same venue has already made its mark with gigs by former Squeeze frontman Glenn Tillbrook, legendary singer-songwriter Rab Noakes, and former Love & Money frontman, James Grant – and last week it moved into the world of movies with a screening of Bohemian Rhapsody.

Mari Wilson’ summer gig is a rare chance to see her perform live in Fife.

She scored half a dozen chart hits across the 1980s with her band The Wilsations, including a cover of Cry Me A River, and, since then, has turned her attention to playing live and appearing on stage.

In 2000 she portrayed Dusty Springfield in Dusty: The Musical, while her own show, Pop Deluxe, pays homage to many great singers including Petula Clark, Sandie Shaw and Cilla Black.

She also penned a one-woman musical, The Love Thing, in 2005, and, in 2012, recorded an album of her favourite songs.

Ticket info on her Fife gig is available from the Woodside.
