CARA DILLON KICKS OFF 09 OFF WITH A NEW SINGLE AND NEW ALBUM
Cara Dillon returns with a brand new album, Hill of Thieves, released on Monday 26 January. The new record has a significantly more acoustic sound than previous albums and also sees Cara returning to her roots with an outstanding collection of traditional songs.Â Already a highly acclaimed torch-bearer of the tradition and original songwriter, Cara and husband, producer and fellow musician Sam set out with a view to emulate the sound and style of classic albums by artists like Planxty and Paul Brady & Andy Irvine.
Cara delivers some of her finest performances to date with sublime interpretations of classics such as “The Parting Glass” and “She Moved Through The Fair” plus a fresh sounding “Spencer The Rover” which features Cara’s brother-in-law Seth Lakeman on vocals, fiddle and tenor guitar.
Cara Dillon: Sunday 25 January, The Black Box, Belfast
