Cara Dillon releases her new album Wanderer tomorrow (13th October 2017) on Charcoal Records.

The Irish folk singer is one of the most celebrated in the genre and for the album she’s ream up with longtime musical partner, producer and husband Sam Lakeman. Wanderer captures a collection of intimate performances with Dillon’s most moving vocals performances yet.

Wanderer is steeped in tradition with an underlying theme being the movement of people, of emigration and the pursuit of love.

Dillon says, “Having lived outside of Ireland for most of my adult life, I continue to identify with these songs of departure and longing for home on a very personal level. Several of the songs refer to places close to where I grew up, making them particularly emotional to sing. It feels like a gift to be able to share these stories as they continue to move and inspire a new generation of people.”
