Recorded in January 2008, this DVD features outstanding live performances of some of Cara's best-loved songs. Assembling some of the finest acoustic musicians from the Celtic world in a breathtaking location on the shore of Lough Foyle in Co Donegal, the results far exceeded all expectations. The recordings are pristine and the footage captures this remarkable, intimate setting beautifully. Watching this, it's no wonder that Cara has been critically acclaimed the world over for her innovative and heartrending renditions of traditional classics such as " Black Is The Colour" and " The Streets Of Derry" plus original songs including "There Were Roses", " Never In A Million Years", "Bold Jamie" and "I Wish You Well". Included is an exclusive interview with Cara, a journey to her family's roots, a photo gallery of the film shoot and a recording of "P Stands For Paddy" performed live in McReynolds Bar in Cara's hometown of Dungiven.

Choosing the 'Play Program' mode (Full 80 Mins) you see Cara talk about her inspirations, family history and stories behind each of the songs as they come along. For repeat viewing you can choose "Play Songs Only" to just watch the performances - A nice touch. Filmed in an informal way these performances vary from just Cara & husband Sam Lakeman to both additional and a full array of talented musicians joining them. Whilst watching these I was surprised that some were done in one take, which Cara explained at the gig - How magical! The sound quality as you can imagine is first class and best appreciated through a good sound system/HiFi. The compositions are superb, Cara's vocal is exquisite creating music that "makes the soul rest". In fact long before the last track 'P Stands For Paddy' filmed Live in a Bar in Dungiven this DVD had reached parts that others don't!
Bonus Extra's include 1) Track by Track selection 2) A Photo Gallery Slideshow with photo's taken on location including the 2 new Lakeman twins at the piano with Dad 3) Switching between Surround and Stereo Sound.
The overall result is a sure-fire winner and even for an unsigned copy I heartily recommend! Enjoy :)
She is a beautiful singer, but I could quickly tire of her voice on CD.
On DVD, the visual performance enhances her greatly, and whilst not liking all of her chosen songs, the renditions of my favourites are such as to make the whole DVD very worthwhile. I particularly like the first five tracks, and her ability to capture the simplicity of songs like "Black is the Colour" in such a hauntingly addictive way is an outstanding talent.
They say Cara Dillon is from Dungiven in County Derry, but she sings like she's right out of Tolkien's Rivendell. This is one of the best music DVDs I've ever watched in in terms of quality of performance. Kudos to Sam Lakeman for his outstanding work as musical director for this project.

Great music by a great artist. For the best version, in my view, of "Garden Valley", get "Transatlantic Sessions 3" - Jerry Douglas and others add a special flavour to the magic.Published on 24 Jun. 2012 by M. Spruce

I found this DVD to be a very good perspective on Cara Dillon's music. The setting, (Iniseoghain, County, Donegal.) was a great choice for it to be filmed at. Read morePublished on 7 Jun. 2009 by Mark W. McCune
