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.

A Thousand Hearts, Cara Dillon’s fifth solo album, is another small masterpiece of song and
emotion, ethereal and radiant, beautifully honed and perfectly true.

The extraordinary Irish singer makes music that transcends genres and crosses barriers. She has won
every folk award going, but confesses to being no purist, making music that reaches beyond the
constraints and limitations of tradition. “To me, you can go anywhere with every song. The melody
and message is at the forefront of everything I do. I don’t really care where the song came from,
how old it is, and who did it first. It’s whether it strikes a note in my heart, does it haunt me,
do I need to sing it?”

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

“My favourite singer … amazing voice”  Amy, EHU student

“She never fails to leave audiences captivated, don’t miss this chance to see her live..”  Bob Harris, Radio 2
