Our first artist announced for the 2019 festival, is the utterly sublime Cara Dillon.
Boasting “quite possibly the world’s most beautiful female voice” (MOJO magazine), Cara Dillon occupies an enviable position at the very top of her genre. This extraordinary Irish singer has been achieving exceptional acclaim and captivating audiences for over 20 years – including a great many on her maiden voyage to Orkney in 2010.
Cara’s legions of fans will attest to impassioned performances, where every note and word is sung with a passion and confidence earned through life of experience singing traditional songs, whilst her warm and natural stage presence is something to savour. Cara and her trio – including husband and musical partner Sam Lakeman – will be performing a selection of favourites from across her career, as well as material from her heralded 2017 album, Wanderer (“gorgeous stuff”, The Guardian).
