Cara Dillon occupies an enviable position at the very top of her genre. This extraordinary Irish singer has been captivating audiences and achieving exceptional acclaim for over 20 years. She has (according to Mojo Magazine) ‘Quite Possibly the world’s most beautiful female voice’.

Alongside a selection of favourites from her previous releases, Cara will be performing material from her new album ‘Wanderer’ which is a collection of beautiful and moving songs recorded in an intimate setting with her husband and musical partner Sam Lakeman. Every note and word sung with a passion and confidence earned through a life of experience singing traditional songs. Legions of fans will attest to their impassioned performances with Cara’s warm and natural stage presence something to savour.

The world’s most beautiful female voice” Mojo Magazine

“Dillon is incapable of singing a duff note.” The Observer

Support: Steve Pilgrim
Probably best known as drummer for Paul Weller (among others) Steve Pilgrim has been writing and recording since 2007. Steve released his fourth album ‘Morning Skies’ in the spring of 2017. Acoustic driven and song-focused the albums feature a supporting cast of talented musicians, double bass, piano, trumpet and vocals. The recordings are simultaneously sad and celebratory, intimate and honest.

Proving a huge hit with our Arts Centre audiences, Steve performed here with his own folk band last year, and collaborated with the legendary double-bass player, Danny Thompson, for a stunning one-off gig in 2017.

“Pilgrim is an unassuming melody maker who lets his magical songs slip their calling card into your palm as he shakes you by the hand on the way out.”  The Skinny ★★★★
