Following the success of last year's sold-out performance at the venue, Cara Dillon returns to the Grand Opera House for one night only next weekend to film a live DVD.
The concert on Sunday, September 13, comes after a successful appearance at the Cambridge Folk Festival and ahead of an American tour and a short Northern Ireland tour throughout October and November for the Dungiven singer, when her guest will be acclaimed American singer/songwriter, Gretchen Peters.
Dillon, who took a career break after the birth of her twin sons, returned with her current and fourth album, Hill Of Thieves, which was the first release on the label she formed with partner Sam Lakeman.
Boasting a significantly more acoustic sound than previous offerings, the album sees her return to her roots with an outstanding collection of traditional songs, including interpretations of classics such as The Parting Glass and She Moved Through The Fair plus a fresh sounding Spencer The Rover, which features Cara's brother-in-law Seth Lakeman on vocals, fiddle and tenor guitar.
