Live At Cooper Hall is a collection of 16 songs compiled from two stunning live concert performances by award-winning Irish folk singer Cara Dillon, accompanied by Sam Lakeman on Steinway grand piano and guitar. It was recorded without distraction —not even an audience— during the first Coronavirus lockdown in July 2020 at Cooper Hall in Somerset by Grammy winning recording engineer Dom Monks and broadcast worldwide to fans online. The extraordinary circumstances of the concert only add to the reflective and intimate nature of the performance — Cara hearing the songs she's sung a thousand times through new ears and understanding, for what felt like the very first time, the heartbreak and longing for home so evident in the lyrics. This album exquisitely captures a special shared moment between two of folk music's finest performers in a career-spanning acoustic set, and features two previously unreleased songs.
