Cooper Hall - Classical Music Venue
with Sam Lakeman
Online Concert

Our First Online Gig at Cooper Hall! Locally based Cara Dillon and Sam Lakeman have recorded a live set in the hall and was aired online on Thursday 13th August at 8.00 pm on Facebook and YouTube. We couldn't be more delighted that our inaugural digital gig supports the work of Cara and Sam and the team of locally based talent who have produced the film. We are hoping this will be the start of future online gigs until we are able to open safely back to the public once again.

"For my first online concert, and with the support of a small and extremely talented crew, I wanted to recreate the experience of a proper performance setting and try as much as possible to capture the essence of one of our more intimate duo concerts: the atmosphere, the sound of the room and the staging and lighting. We've gone to great lengths to capture the concert in the highest quality available for all of you to watch from the comfort and safety of your homes, maybe with a glass of wine and your smartphone on silent and escape the turmoil outside for short while and lose yourselves in the spirit of a live concert.

The concert location is the beautiful Cooper Hall which is the same space we recorded much of "Wanderer" and "Upon a Winter's Night" in and this is no ordinary Lockdown gig; it's a 5 camera shoot with a crew that includes Grammy-nominated audio engineer Dom Monks who recorded recent online concerts for Laura Marling and Nick Cave and also filmmakers Simon Whitehead and Brendan Lines."
