« Cara Dillon: the big interview | Main | John Martyn RIP »

January 10, 2009



Never saw them but from their records Deanta with Mary Dillon were a good band.
This clip - introduced by Brendan Begley - is from the wonderful Irish language TV station TG4 that has some great music - go to http://www.tg4.tv/ and select Ceol from the menu for the archive.

Thanks for completing a fine interview, I very much enjoyed it and the links to the lovely videos of Cara, Sam, Paul Brady and the song by Mary Dillon that I had not heard before. The musical talent seems to pour from the very pores of the Dillon and Lakeman Families. It is a pity that I will not be around when Noah and Colm show us what their mixed genes will produce musically in a decade or so. All The Best, from Malcolm


Your feedback is most welcome. It can be a struggle to attract readers to a small, independent site and the single most important factor in ensuring the survival of Salut! Live has been the willingness of artists of the calibre of Cara - and, before her, Martin Simpson/Kate Rusby/Rachel Unthank/Marie Little/Vin Garbutt/Simon Nicol and former members of Fotheringay (with apologies to anyone I may have overlooked) - to give their time so generously.

I have just got hold of Hill of Thieves and it is as good as the Emirates Guru says it is. I was ambivalent about Cara until I saw her live at The Lowery in Salford last June and I realised that she was one hell of a lot more than good.The album is a real treat and I look forward to her recording The Yorkshiremans Lament in the future. Her take on Halifax could be interesting. Listening to it after a 1-0 win over Fulham is an added bonus.
