Cara Dillon


There is another side to Christmas…far away from Bing crooning and Noddy screaming…it’s a place where the story of Jesus’ birth is retold with genuine wonder and celebrated with the dignity, passion and beauty it deserves. Turner Sims is delighted to welcome back Cara Dillon, possessed of one of the most celebrated folk voices to have come out of Ireland, who is touring her Christmas show Upon A Winter’s Night for a third year running this December.

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.

Cara’s acclaimed Christmas album Upon A Winter’s Night reached Number 1 in the Indie Album Charts not once, but twice in 2016. Christmas is one of Cara’s passions and her live show and album only go to prove it.
