To celebrate our 10th year of bringing shows to the town, Clonmel Junction Arts Festival invited us to select an artist to take part in this years festival. We picked a great Irish folk artist and her band, Cara Dillon, from Derry. Cara will bring her three piece band, including the great folk artist Sam Lakeman on piano.
Born in Dungiven in 1975, surrounded and infused with the rich cultural heritage of her native County Derry, Cara has risen to become one of the finest exponents of traditional Irish song anywhere in the world. Possessing a rare and unique voice that has been lauded since her very beginnings winning the All Ireland singing trophy aged only 14. Together with her husband and musical partner, Sam Lakeman, she has successfully steered an eclectic musical path defying the typical pigeonholes that hinder most artists in her genre. Celebrated for entwining traditional and contemporary elements she has earned both commercial success and astonishing critical acclaim.
Cara plays most of the big UK venues and Festivals, and this is her first trip to Ireland in a few years. This will be a classy show, and we are delighted to be associated with it.
