Few singers are as celebrated and revered as Cara Dillon. Known for her captivating live performances she seldom fails to leave audiences spellbound. 

Cara’s breadth of appeal stems from an acclaimed career that includes being signed to legendary indie record label Rough Trade, providing the title track and narration for a Disney film, appearing with symphony orchestras in England, Scotland, Ireland and beyond, with contemporary superstars such as Ed Sheeran, Ellie Goulding, and Sam Smith citing her as an influence – yet her most successful record to date comprises traditional Irish folk songs released on her own label. As Mojo magazine says, Cara Dillon has “quite possibly the world’s most beautiful female voice”.

Ahead of an official release in 2024, this autumn sees Cara unveiling “Coming Home”, her first new material in almost six years, in which she effortlessly blurs the lines between spoken word and song to stunning effect. She brings to life profoundly personal memories of her native Co. Derry and the people, places, and customs she holds closest to her heart; revealing a freedom to express herself within the tiniest of details and life’s larger mysteries with resonance to the wider world. Skilfully interspersed with songs from her catalogue throughout the set, join Cara and her band as she shares this truly unique and inspiring collection accompanied by original music written by Sam Lakeman. This will be a very special opportunity to experience a revealing and emotive performance by this internationally acclaimed singer.
