WHAT'S ON / Cara Dillon plus special guests
Cara Dillon has won Best Album at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and has a legion of devoted fans from the world of folk, while her angelically clear voice, bitter-sweet storytelling and witty charm have also won her a broader following. In concert Dillon treats her audiences as friends, ‘as if they were neighbours chit-chatting over the garden fence’ (The Guardian). Cara’s fifth solo album, A Thousand Hearts, is another small masterpiece of song and emotion, ethereal and radiant, beautifully honed and perfectly true.
Whether she's singing her native traditional songs of lost love and emigration, or original compositions, you will be hard pressed to find a more emotive and captivating performer.
Cara will be joined on stage by her band, Sam Lakeman (piano, guitar), Ed Boyd (guitar), Luke Daniels (accordion) and Niall Murphy (fiddle).
“Cara Dillon has such an expressive and crystal clear soprano voice that she can glide across modern Americana, traditional ballad and modern pop with equal grace” (The Telegraph)
