Dungiven songstress Cara Dillon has promised fans a special treat tomorrow night when she plays in Limavady, vowing to give the audience “something different” with an intimate gig.

The acclaimed folk singer will treat a sold-out audience at the Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre to a show packed with some of her best-known songs and some newer ones.

Instead of the full band she normally plays with, it will be a smaller set-up featuring fellow band member and husband, Sam Lakeman. “It’s been a long time since I played locally so this will be really special, and everyone has been raving about great the new Arts Centre so it’s exciting,” she told the ‘Journal’.

“Usually it’s the five of us playing, but on Saturday it will just be Sam and myself. We’ll do a selection of songs and see how it goes on the night. People, hopefully, will enjoy it. Fingers crossed!”

Desima Connolly from the Arts Centre said having such “internationally acclaimed home-grown talent” in the centre looks sure to create an “electric atmosphere”.
