Cara Dillon to sing folk
    2017-August-31  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Irish folk singer Cara Dillon will perform a concert in October at Nanshan Cultural and Sports Center.

In 1995, she joined the folk supergroup Equation and signed a record deal with Warners Music Group. After leaving the group, she collaborated with Sam Lakeman under the name of Polar Star.

In 2001, she released her first solo album “Cara Dillon,” which was an unexpected hit in the folk world, with Dillon receiving four nominations at the 2002 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

Her second album “Sweet Liberty” (2003) entered the Irish album charts and U.K. indie album charts. In 2004, Dillon received the Meteor Irish Music Award for Best Irish Female.

Her third album “After the Morning” was released in 2006. The album’s opening track “Never in a Million Years” gained Radio 2 Airplay, while other tracks featured the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra and Paul Brady. Also in 2006, Dillon sang at the opening of the Ryder Cup in Ireland.

In 2009, Dillon released her fourth album, the award-winning “Hill of Thieves.” The record marked a return to Dillon’s traditional roots with a purer production and arrangement style. The titular track was voted by BBC listeners as one of the top 10 original songs to have come out of Northern Ireland.

In 2012, Dillon performed two concerts with the Ulster Orchestra.

Her fifth album “A Thousand Hearts” was released in 2014 and she has since embarked on several popular Chinese tours. Her most recent release is a Christmas album, “Upon a Winter’s Night” (2016).

Dillon’s husband Sam Lakeman, an English musician, songwriter, producer and co-owner of Charcoal Records, often backs her on piano and guitar.
