Event details: CARA LUFT
Canadian Cara Luft was a founder member of The Wailin' Jennys and is turning heads with her blend of roots, folk, rock and country music. With her unique Alt-Roots sound, Luft has a richly deserved reputation as a triple threat: powerfully elegant guitar work, imaginative songwriting and a distinctive voice that penetrates to the core.

With rhythmic grooves, fleet fingers and a commanding resonant sound, Cara is a guitar maven of open tunings, branching out into mandolin and clawhammer banjo. Her writing is a blend of social commentary, imagination and musical intensity. In performance she balances pathos with joy, telling hilarious stories between songs.

Cara will be appearing with Hugh McMillan on bass and vocals.

Navaro combines the talents of singer/songwriters Beth Navaro, Pete White and Steve Austin. Now a beautifully formed trio they create a melodic 'singers collective' where the sound is about voices and the song is the star. The trio share lead vocal duties and combine in ways determined by the song. In some respects they follow in the tradition of Crosby, Stills and Nash.

Gus MacGregor is the former front man of Loman and is an accomplished singer/songwriter whose style has been compared to Paul Simon, Don McLean, Damian Rice and Bob Dylan. As an actor he was nominated for an Olivier Award in 2000. Since then he been writing, performing and recording with a range of artists including Judie Tzuke, KD Lang, Ray Lamontagne, Nizlopi and Glen Tilbrook.
