Cara Luft was such a hit at our House Concert last November that we have decided to host her at the Town Hall in Richards Landing this year. With a bigger venue, we`re hoping to draw a bigger crowd . . . so . . . “Come on out to the island, come one, come all! It’ll be worth your drive to the Old Town Hall.” (I promise you!!)

SHORT BIO Juno award-winning singer-songwriter Cara Luft is that rare artist steeped in folk and traditional roots music almost from birth yet willing to alter that fabric, stretch the boundaries, not afraid to bend genres and styles. She has recently released a a stunning new collection of songs, Darlingford, the much anticipated third album by this Calgary-born, Winnipeg-based performer. It is her most intimately personal and fully realized recording to date, drawn from recent life experiences and informed throughout with her indomitably optimistic spirit and impeccable musical instincts. Recorded primarily in the tiny rural southwestern Manitoba community of Darlingford (blink and you’ll miss it), the album shines a bright light on Cara’s skill at turning personal heartbreak into universal themes that resonate with listeners and is a musically deep, undeniably rich example of life informing art. Luft has earned a solid reputation as one of Canada’s finest live performers and acoustic guitar players whose engaging, down-home style is wrapped in a delicious sense of humour. Cara’s the real deal, there’s nothing pretentious about her. And that sense of honesty, integrity, personality and spontaneity permeates and resonates throughout both her music and her live shows.
