Few singers are as celebrated and revered as Cara Dillon. Known for her captivating live performances she seldom fails to leave audiences spellbound with her breathtaking voice and emotional delivery. Her longstanding partnership with Sam Lakeman has ensured they have remained at the very pinnacle of the folk genre for over two decades.
In this, the unveiling of “Coming Home”, her first new material in nearly six years, Cara effortlessly blurs the lines between spoken word and song to stunning effect, bringing to life profoundly personal memories, her native Co. Derry and the people, places and customs she holds closest to her heart; revealing a newly found freedom to express herself within the tiniest of details and life’s larger mysteries, this is Cara singing and sharing like never before. Skillfully weaving songs from her catalogue throughout the set, join Cara and her band as she shares a truly unique collection of poems accompanied by original music written by Sam Lakeman.
Cara and Sam are certainly not prolific but when they do unveil new music it really is something to savour and this will be a very special opportunity to experience a revealing and emotive performance by this internationally acclaimed singer and her band – definitely not one to miss!
