Cara Dillon, possessed of one of the most celebrated folk voices to have
come out of Ireland, will be touring her annual Christmas show “Upon A
Winter’s Night”. The overwhelming success of previous tours cementing this
magical and memorable festive experience as a firm tradition for many years
to come.

Cara and her band will once again capture the mystery of Christmas with a
collection of songs ancient and modern providing a welcome reminder that
the festive season can be about more than just commercialism. A far cry from
“Jingle Bells” and “Santa Baby” Cara will be joined by her wonderful band
who weave celtic and folksy rhythms alongside reverent and atmospheric
carols while Cara holds the darkness at bay with the purity of her voice.
As modest and down to earth as they come, Cara admits to being taken
aback by the success of her acclaimed Christmas album “Upon A Winter’s
Night” when it reached Number 1 in the Indie Album Charts not once, but
twice in 2016. With 17 dates on sale this year there’s plenty of opportunity
for people to catch this uplifting and moving concert. There is another side to
Christmas…far away from Bing crooning and Noddy screaming…it’s a place
where the story of Jesus’ birth is retold with genuine wonder and celebrated
with the dignity, passion and beauty it deserves. Christmas is one of Cara’s
passions and her live show and album only go to prove it.
Throughout an enviable career which has seen her explore opportunities to
tread many different paths – from releasing folk crossover albums on indie
label Rough Trade; working on Disney soundtracks to collaborations with
leading UK dance DJ/producers – Cara has continuously chosen to firmly
plant herself within the landscape of her cultural heritage. She occupies a
position at the very top of the Irish Folk genre. This extraordinary Irish singer
has been captivating audiences, winning awards and achieving exceptional
acclaim for over 20 years. She has (according to Mojo magazine) “Quite
possibly the world’s most beautiful female voice”.“simple and stunning” – The Sunday Times
“An instant Christmas classic” – BBC
“there’s enchantment aplenty” – The Independent ★ ★ ★ ★
“A reminder of the real meaning of the Festive Season, uplifting and
inspirational” – The Daily Echo
