*Irish Music Award „Top Group“*
*Irish Music Award „Best New Irish Artist“*
Cara was formed in 2003, rooted in Irish and Scottish traditional music, but with ambitions to create a new
and unique sound.
After winning the Irish Music Award „Best New Irish Artist“ Cara sets out for new
Jeana Leslie (vocals, piano, fiddle) and Gudrun Walther (vocals, fiddle, viola) are in perfect command of
their instruments but above all it is their voices that enthrall the audience. They bring new life to traditional
ballads and their interpretations of their own songs are guaranteed to raise goosepimples!
It would be difficult to find a more talented young musician to emerge from the vibrant Irish trad music scene than Ryan Murphy (uilleann pipes, flute, whistles). His brilliant technique, faultless style, unique tone and expressiveness have earned him seven All-Ireland and two Oireachtas titles on the pipes .
Jürgen Treyz (guitars) has his own concept of “backing”. His sound is characterised by well thought out and
exciting harmonic and rhythmic accompaniment and beautiful solos.
With Rolf Wagels the band adds Germanys best (and biggest) Bodhrán player.
Cara is always very busy with appearances in Europe and the US. They performed sold-out concerts and received standing ovations in the US, Brittany, Ireland, England, France, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland and home ground Germany.
