Extraordinary Irish singer brings back her Christmas show

Where: Pittville Pump Room, Cheltenham

When: Saturday, December 14, 7.30pm

Cara Dillon, possessed of one of the most celebrated folk voices to have come out of Ireland, is bringing her Christmas show "Upon A Winter's Night" for a third year running this December.

The overwhelming success of previous tours cemented this magical and memorable festive experience as a firm tradition for many years to come.

Cara and her band will once again 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 will be joined by her wonderful band who weave Celtic and folksy rhythms alongside reverent and atmospheric carols while Cara holds the darkness at bay with the purity of her voice.

Throughout an enviable career which has seen her explore opportunities to tread many different paths - from releasing folk crossover albums on indie label Rough Trade; working on Disney soundtracks to collaborations with leading UK dance DJ/producers - Cara has continuously chosen to firmly plant herself within the landscape of her cultural heritage.

She occupies a position at the very top of the Irish Folk genre. This extraordinary Irish singer has been captivating audiences, winning awards and achieving exceptional acclaim for over 20 years. She has (according to Mojo magazine) "Quite possibly the world's most beautiful female voice".
