I’ve never done anything but dream. This, and this alone, has been the meaning of my life. My only real concern has been my inner life. FERNANDO PESSOA

Cara Dillon

Last weekend we went to the Southwell Folk Festival. It was very enjoyable and superbly well organised. Over the 3 days (6 - 8 June) we saw and heard some fine bands and artists, including the highly original harmony band Tanglefoot from Canada, traditional Irish band Last Night's Fun, Hilary James and Simon Mayor (one of the world's top mandolin players), Brooks Williams (a really remarkable American bluesy, finger-picking guitarist and singer), Rachel Unthank, Bellowhead - and the lovely, divine, incomparable Cara Dillon. Here are links to a couple of Cara's YouTube videos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-oquRLcmAM; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MF8mxuOu5WE
