Cara Dillon - Coming Home Live.jpg

CARA DILLON

Few singers are as revered as Cara Dillon. Having earned her place as one of the most celebrated and award-winning folk singers in Ireland, she is renowned for her captivating live performances and seldom fails to leave audiences spellbound.

DATE: 12/07/24

TIME: Doors 7.30pm

VENUE: Alton Assembly Rooms

Cara’s breadth of appeal stems from a remarkable career that continually places her home and culture at the very heart of her music and began with her singing with the likes of De Dannan and Óige as a teenager, being signed to legendary indie record label Rough Trade Records, providing the title track and narration for a Disney movie, appearing with Symphony Orchestras in England, Scotland, Ireland and beyond, even leading to contemporary superstars such as Ed Sheeran, Ellie Goulding, and Sam Smith all citing her as an important influence.

And 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 beautful female voice”.
