Artist Intro: Cara

Cara (GER) are a rare beast: a German band (with some Irish force too) playing Celtic trad often so impressively, it’s nearly impossible to figure out how dedicated they must be… They have been at it for a respectable while, with a sizable repertoire that includes Irish and Scottish traditional songs but also Ye Olde English ballads and also their own original material that is more in the singer-songwriter vein than trad; on occasion, faint American country influences can be detected. Sometimes that can lead to an uneven listening experience (when playing an album all the way through) but on the whole, they are very skilled and entertaining and must be commended for taking Celtic music to wider audiences in the continental Europe and worldwide.
