Cara Dillon & Sam Lakeman play Milverton Music on 15th October 2021

We are so pleased to have booked this extraordinary Irish singer for her third visit to Milverton. Cara makes music that transcends genres and crosses many barriers. With her husband Sam Lakeman she has won every folk award going, but confesses to being no purist, making music that reaches beyond the constraints and limitations of tradition. "To me, you can go anywhere with every song. The melody and message is at the forefront of everything I do. I don't really care where the song came from, how old it is, and who did it first. It's whether it strikes a note in my heart, does it haunt me, do I need to sing it?"
Raised in the small village of Dungiven, Northern Ireland,
Cara has been singing all her life. "I do believe I am part of a continuing story, a story that's still unfolding, that reaches back through songs I've grown up with, and uncles that emigrated to America, and stuff that happened in my own family.

If you don't know the voice of Cara Dillon, you're in for a treat. If you are already amongst her legions of admirers around the world, you know you have something special in store.
Her latest album 'WANDERER' is a masterpiece of song and emotion. We were very pleased to see that the third track, 'The leaving song'  also features. When Cara last visited us in 2017 it was one of the first times she had played it in public before even settling on a title, it was brilliant.
We look forward to a very special evening.
