One of the most original and stunning singers of traditional music. Cara Dillon won the All Ireland Singing Trophy at the age of 14 and went on to sing with Oige, De Dannan and Equation – where she met husband and musical collaborator Sam Lakeman. Whether she’s singing her native songs of lost love and emigration, or their original compositions, you will be hard pressed to find a more emotive and captivating performer.

“Quite possibly the world’s most beautiful female voice…”Q Magazine

The 9pm show will feature support from northern Irish singer-songwriter Kieran Goss.
