Folk in the Barn are pleased to invite the exceptional Cara Dillon back to Canterbury for a  night of Christmas songs in what will undoubtedly be a magical and memorable festive experience.

Having released her highly acclaimed Christmas album "Upon A Winter's Night" in 2016, Cara and her band will be capturing the mystery of Christmas with a collection of songs ancient and modern providing a welcome antidote to 21st century Yuletide excess.

As modest and down to earth as they come, Cara admits to being taken aback by the success of her first Christmas album when it reached Number 1 in the Indie Album Charts not once, but twice last year. She toured the release with a handful of shows and was amazed when they all sold out. With 17 dates on sale this year there’s even more opportunity for people to catch this uplifting and moving concert. 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. Christmas is one of Cara’s passions and this album and live show prove it.

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. Cara Dillon occupies a position at the very top of her 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".
