BBC FOLK AWARDS 2018

Cara and Sam performed "The Leaving Song" live at this years BBC Radio Folk Awards in Belfast. You can watch their stunning performance HERE 

The full performance, including an unscheduled chorus of "There Were Roses" was broadcast on BBC Radio 2 and can be streamed HERE

The Guardian review of the awards said:

"Cara Dillon, from just 50 miles away in Dungiven, performed the melancholy Leaving Song and then announced that in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the Good Friday peace agreement she’d sing a segment of Tommy Sands’ classic Troubles anthem, There Were Roses. The audience responded instantly, voices rising to sing the chorus in the most affecting moment of the night."

Unfortunately, Cara missed out on scooping the prestigious "Folk Singer Of The Year" award.
