To mark her long career and her 50th birthday, Cara Luft (The Small Glories, The Wailin’ Jennys) is launching 50 for 50 — fifty curated shows that will see her travel across Canada, the US and Europe. Join Cara for a one-of-a-kind unique performance full of musical surprises! As one promoter put it, “I don’t know which is more beguiling… her 1000 watt personality, her wizardry on guitar and banjo, the power of her voice or her songwriting talent? In any event, the audience is in for a real treat!”

Juno award winning singer-songwriter-musician Cara Luft is that rare artist steeped in folk and traditional roots music almost from birth, yet willing to alter the fabric, stretch the boundaries and fearlessly bend genres and styles. A founding member of Canadian folk super-group The Wailin’ Jennys and the brainchild/bandleader of Winnipeg’s acclaimed powerhouse duo The Small Glories, Luft deserves her solid reputation as one of Canada’s finest live performers, armed with amazing tenacity, vision, energy and a contagious hilarity.

To quote the roots magazine No Depression, “Luft has a rich tradition in folk music – it’s safe to assume that she knows her stuff – and upon listening it becomes quite clear that she is indeed a formidable songwriter and performer… [The] lovely Ms. Luft sets the bar for the talented few who’ll follow in her footsteps.”

Luft has a spirit that drives her to connect with people, and for this she is loved everywhere she goes. Reviewers of her live shows talk about her powerhouse vocals, superb musicianship, humorous anecdotes, ability to switch between styles, accomplished songwriting and the charm of her stage presence. Cara’s the real deal, there’s nothing pretentious about her. And that sense of honesty, integrity, personality and spontaneity permeates both her music and her live shows. “Long may she reign!” (Lonesome Highway)
