Cara Dillon, who has been nominated for singer of the year in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2015, will be performing in Derbyshire as part of a nationwide tour.

She will air tracks from her latest critically-acclaimed album A Thousand Hearts in concert at Derby’s Guildhall on Sunday, February 22.

Describing how performing in smaller places affects her, Cara said: “Being in an intimate venue is where I feel most comfortable. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a thrill to perform on big stages but I absolutely love the moments when I can drift away from the audience and totally lose myself in a song...there’s nothing like it.”

Her fourth album, Hill Of Thieves, won BBC Folk Album of the Year in 2010.

Cara will be supported by Abbie Rechert in the concert at the Guildhall which starts at 8pm. Tickets cost £19.75. To book contact 01332 255800 or www.derbylive.co.uk/whats-on/cara-dillon
