DOES Cara Dillon possess the most beautiful voice in the world?

A critic with Mojo magazine thought so, and members of a Worcester audience will be able to make up their own minds, when she takes to the stage of The Huntingdon Hall.

A spokesman said: “Cara Dillon occupies an enviable position at the very top of her genre. This extraordinary Irish singer has been captivating audiences and achieving exceptional acclaim for over 20 years.

“Born in Dungiven in 1975, surrounded and infused with the rich cultural heritage of her native County Derry, Cara has risen to become one of the finest exponents of traditional Irish song anywhere in the world.

“She possesses a rare and unique voice that has been lauded since her very beginnings, winning the All-Ireland singing trophy aged only fourteen.”

The spokesman added: “Together with her husband and musical partner Sam Lakeman, she has successfully steered an eclectic musical path, defying the typical pigeonholes that hinder most artists in her genre.

“Celebrated for entwining traditional and contemporary elements she has earned both commercial success and astonishing critical acclaim.

“Recent years have seen her return wholeheartedly to her Irish roots, creating fresh interpretations of traditional standards with stunning results.”

Her reach is truly global, with fans to be found all over the world. Her clear, Northern Irish voice has even seduced giants such as Disney, who in 2010 asked her to sing the title song to the animated movie Tinkerbell and the Great Fairy Rescue.

The spokesman added: “She’s won countless awards and accolades including Album Of The Year at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, The Meteor Music Award for Best Irish Female, and Tatler’s Woman Of The Year in Music, and has appeared in prestigious concert halls and at festivals the world over.”

The concert takes place on Friday, February 15, from 7.30pm.
