CARA with Freedom of Mind Choir
Falkirk Trinity Church, Falkirk.
Uplifting, energising and expressive, CARA (Irish for friend) tour internationally, performing innovative arrangements of material firmly rooted in the Irish and Scottish traditions alongside critically acclaimed original songs and tunes.
"Strong on emotion, story and poetry… impressive, dramatic and accomplished" FolkRadio.UK
CARA are excited to tour Scotland, celebrating the band’s 15th anniversary and a brand new live album.
“Great musicianship […] total respect for the material. Wonderful.” Mike Harding
With lead vocalists Gudrun Walther (Germany) and Kim Edgar (Scotland) alongside piano, fiddle, flute, guitar, uilleann pipes and accordion, CARA have been described as “a whole festival wrapped up in one band” (Bruce MacGregor, BBC Radio Scotland).
“They radiated a warmth that charmed our audience demanding they return on their next tour.” Chapel Sessions
CARA’s unique mix of songs and tunes brings together lovers of both traditional and contemporary folk. Come, make some new friends, and join in the celebration!
