Cara Dillon

Cara Dillon

"Quite possibly the world's most beautiful female voice" (Mojo Magazine).

Raised in the small village of Dungiven, Northern Ireland, Cara has risen to become one of the finest exponents of traditional Irish song anywhere in the world. Occupying an enviable position at the very top of her genre, Cara has been captivating audiences and achieving exceptional acclaim for over 20 years.  Her album, Hill of Thieves, proved her most successful yet, landing top ten in the UK indie charts, number one on iTunes Folk and Amazon World & Folk charts and voted “Best Album” at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2010. The extraordinary singer makes music that transcends genres and crosses barriers:

“To me, the melody and message is at the forefront of everything I do. It’s whether it strikes a note in my heart, does it haunt me? I’m looking for something that touches me deeply, and I feel like I’m the vessel for letting it live on.” Cara Dillon

Alongside a selection of favourites from her previous releases, Cara will be performing material from her new album "Wanderer" which is a collection of beautiful and moving songs recorded with husband and musical partner, Sam Lakeman.

If you don’t know the voice of Cara Dillon, you’re in for a treat. If you are already amongst her legions of admirers around the world, you know you have something special in store.
