Cara Dillon, one of folk’s leading lights, returns with the captivating album A Thousand Hearts on her own Charcoal Records in partnership with Sony Music.

Well worth the wait, A Thousand Hearts, follows the acclaimed ‘Hill of Thieves’, released in 2009 and named the Radio 2 Folk Album of the Year in 2010. Produced and arranged by husband Sam Lakeman, the album features guest vocals from Timothy B Schmit (The Eagles), American singer/songwriter Aoife O'Donovan and English folk musician John Smith.

The eleven songs on this new disc are an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary loosely themed around affairs of the heart. These include songs such as ‘Avalanche’ a stunning cover of the Shawn Colvin song, ‘River, Run’ a cover of little known 90’s indie pop act Suddenly Tammy! which is a beautiful song about River Phoenix –and also a number of traditional songs including ‘As I Roved Out’ continuing Cara’s the practice of taking better known folk songs and making them her own.
