Society of Sound: Cara Dillon Christmas Album

The Bowers & Wilkins Society of Sound release for December 2018 full embraces the festive season.

Cara Dillon’s Upon A Winter’s Night is an evocative take on Christmas, capturing the essence of this time of year with a collection of songs ancient and modern that provide a much-needed antidote to 21st century Yuletide excess. In a brave and intensely satisfying decision Dillon, and musical partner/producer (and husband) Sam Lakeman, have chosen to steer the musical tone of the album into much darker territory.

This album is dedicated to anyone who yearns for the company of someone they love, may it bring you some comfort, especially at Christmas time.” – Cara & Sam

Beautifully recorded in a variety of locations including Gorbals Sound, Cooper Hall and Cara and Sam’s own Random Sounds Studio, Upon A Winter’s Night features acoustic arrangements that are simple, open and dynamic with performances that are both sympathetic and full of character.
