Cara Luft is a widely-respected and well-traveled member of the Canadian folk/roots music community. She has graced the stage at Lilith Fair and been invited to perform at the prestigious International Guitar Festival in the UK. With The Wailin’ Jennys she created one of the most talked about folk groups of the last ten years and recorded the exquisite 40 Days, winner of the 2005 Juno award for Best Roots Recording (Group). Since leaving the trio she has wowed audiences and critics with her solo performances across North America and Europe. Critics have drawn comparisons to Julie Miller, June Tabor, Gillian Welch, Linda Thompson and Brit folk-rockers Pentangle. Cara’s last solo album, The Light Fantastic, has garnered superlatives far and wide. Reviewers fell over themselves in praising her original material, her distinctiveness and daring mix of styles, and her eclectic approach drawing on folk, roots and rock. Her songwriting is always evocative and insightful, her guitar playing fully accomplished and intricate, her voice distinctive, compelling and heartfelt. Critics and fans alike are eagerly awaiting the release of her upcoming new album, slated for release in the fall of 2011.
