Cara Dillon, possessed of one of Ireland’s most celebrated folk voices, returns to The Stoller Hall to perform her Christmas show “Upon A Winter’s Night”, which she has now toured for three years running thanks to its overwhelming success.
Cara and her band 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’s wonderful band weave Celtic and folksy rhythms through atmospheric carols, while Cara holds the darkness at bay with the purity of her voice.
Modest and down-to-earth, 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 in 2016. The music shows another side to Christmas, where the nativity story is retold with genuine wonder and celebrated with dignity and beauty.
