Cara's highly anticipated new studio album, "Hill of Thieves", shows a phenomenal return to her roots with some of the finest renditions and vocal performances she has ever recorded.

Irish folk singer Cara Dillon took a career break after the dramatic, premature birth of her twin sons in November 2006, and returns creatively refreshed with Hill Of Thieves, her fourth CD, but the first release on the Charcoal label she's formed with partner Sam Lakeman.

"Hill Of Thieves" has a significantly more acoustic sound than previous albums and also sees her returning to her roots with an outstanding collection of traditional songs. Already a highly acclaimed torch-bearer of the tradition and original songwriter, Cara and husband, producer and fellow musician Sam set out with a view to emulate the sound and style of classic albums by artists like Planxty and Paul Brady & Andy Irvine.

Cara delivers some of her finest performances to date with sublime interpretations of classics such as "The Parting Glass" and "She Moved Through The Fair" plus a fresh sounding "Spencer The Rover" which features Cara's brother-in-law (and fellow ground breaker) Seth Lakeman on vocals, fiddle and tenor guitar.
