Presented by Saffron Hall

In the world of traditional music, few luminaries shine as brightly as Cara Dillon. This Irish singer blessed with a breathtakingly pure voice has remained at the very pinnacle of the folk genre for over two decades.

The 2024 album Coming Home featured her first new material in over six years, here skilfully woven round a carefully curated selection of her beloved classics. The resulting tapestry seamlessly blends evocative storytelling, poetry and song, capturing her personal memories of her native County Derry and the people, places and customs she holds closest to her heart.
