Cara is recognized as one of Ireland’s truly great singers.

She has performed with legendary Irish folk bands De Dannan and Oige and she now collaborates with her husband Sam Lakeman which has resulted in the creation of a catalogue of stunning new live and recorded music.

Born in Dungiven in 1975, she was brought up in a close musical family immersed in the rich cultural heritage of her native County Derry. Having won the All Ireland Traditional Singing Trophy aged only 14 she went on to sing with Oige, De Dannan and then Equation.

It was in this band that she met her husband and musical collaborator Sam Lakeman and the combination of Cara's expressive vocals and Lakeman's rippling piano and fresh production squeezed new life into ancient material.

Whether she's singing her native traditional songs of lost love and emigration, or their original compositions, you will be hard pressed to find a more emotive and captivating performer.
