Cara Dillon, together with Sam Lakeman, returns with her second offering from the intimate setting of Cooper Hall in Somerset following the glowing reviews and overwhelming response to her first online concert.
The first Cooper Hall concert saw Cara and Sam deliver a brave and emotional performance which managed to capture that elusive quality which has escaped a host of lockdown concerts, a real sense of being present at a live concert.
The same team from Live at Cooper Hall returns for this special second concert which will see Cara and Sam performing an entirely different set of songs following the same warm and intimate path that was so highly praised by their fans the first time around. Dillon also reveals that she will be performing a song she has never performed before.
As before, the online concert will be free to view on Cara Dillon’s Facebook and YouTube, and it will also be available to download in high-resolution audio from Bandcamp afterward.
