Irish pianist and singer Peggy Dell (Margaret Tisdall) playing the piano in 1963. An unidentified male double bass player is visible in the background. This shot appears to have been taken in a music shop; a sign reading 'This is a walk round store' is visible in the right background. Dell was one of the judges of the talent competition in the Telefís Éireann (RTÉ Television) family entertainment programme 'The Joe Linnane Show' at the time this photograph was taken. A short feature on the competition judges appeared in the RTV Guide of 25 October 1963.
Peggy Dell sang with Roy Fox's band in London and toured America with Jack Hilton's dance band before returning to Ireland at the outbreak of World War II. She won a Jacob's Award in 1974 for her performance in the RTÉ Television programme 'Peg O' My Heart'.
