Caroline Dale mocht als young musician of the year 1978 als dertienjarige de toen al erg zieke Jacqueline Du Pré opzoeken. Later zou ze haar rol “spelen” (letterlijk, dus op de cello, niet als actrice) voor de film “Hilary and Jackie”. Ze doet dat wel meer, cello spelen op filmsoundtracks. Zo b.v. bij “Truly, Madly, Deeply”, “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas”, as well as the 2005 adaptation of Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” and 2007’s Academy Award winner “Atonement”. Here she plays the solo cello part in “Elegy for Dunkirk”, written by Dario Marianelli. She has also performed with Jimmy Page and Robert Plant during their 1994 tour promoting the album “No Quarter” and she plays in the 1994 video for “Whatever” by Oasis. Furthermore she played with David Gilmour during his 2002 solo tour dates, and on his most recent album, “On an Island”. In 2008, she appeared, playing solo cello, at Ron Geesin’s two performances of the “Atom Heart Mother Suite”, with Pink Floyd tribute band Mun Floyd, the Royal College Brass Ensemble, and the choral group Canticum. Up until as recently as 2007, she was Sinéad O’Connor’s touring cellist. She often sang with O’Connor and her band on the song “In This Heart”, from the 1994 album “Universal Mother”. And finally she plays cello on a number of tracks on U2’s 2009 album “No Line on the Horizon”. Dale currently plays Principal Cello for the English Chamber Orchestra and London Metropolitan Orchestra. In 2002, Dale released “Such Sweet Thunder”, an album of classical music with performances of Handel’s Sarabande from the D-minor harpsichord suite, and the Largo from Vivaldi’s E minor Cello Sonata.
