From Cara Dillon: Hi Everyone, I have very exciting news! It's been an interesting few months...ups and downs indeed, but thankfully staying safe and sound throughout. Many of you know already that my concerts have all been cancelled due to COVID-19, but rather than dwell too much longer on the disappointment this has brought for all of us, Sam and I have thrown ourselves whole heartedly into recording a very special concert as a gift for all my fans... that means YOU!
For my first online concert, and with the support of a small and extremely talented crew, I wanted to recreate the experience of a proper performance setting and try as much as possible to capture the essence of one of our more intimate duo concerts: the atmosphere, the sound of the room and the staging and lighting. We've gone to great lengths to capture the concert in the highest quality available for all of you to watch from the comfort and safety of your homes, maybe with a glass of wine and your smartphone on silent and escape the turmoil outside for short while and lose yourselves in the spirit of a live concert.
The concert location is the beautiful Cooper Hall which is the same space we recorded much of "Wanderer" and "Upon a Winter's Night" in and this is no ordinary Lockdown gig; it's a 5 camera shoot with a crew that includes Grammy nominated audio engineer Dom Monks who recorded recent online concerts for Laura Marling and Nick Cave and also filmmakers Simon Whitehead and Brendan Lines.
We hope you'll join us for this special online event “Live at Cooper Hall” on Thursday 13th August at 8pm BST on YouTube and Facebook.
