The Buzz – What People Are Saying…

BUDDY MILLER – Producer, Songwriter, Musician
“Cara’s new record “The Light Fantastic” is great, real, and heartfelt – as she is.  No fluff or extra notes – just the good stuff!”

TERRY DAVID MULLIGAN – Host, CKUA
“This is her time, this is her year and THIS is the album.  Ladies and Gentlemen, make room in your music world for Cara Luft.  Songwriting as good as any I heard in all of 2006, begins my 2007… and just when you think you’ve got her style and passion nailed down she busts out in a completely different direction.  Take the song Theres a train… it’s like a modern day version of Buffalo Springfield’s Bluebird… soft, gentle folksy beginning and then 3 minutes in, the song kicks into a rocking finish that stays with you long after the cd is over.  And that’s just the first track on The Light Fantastic.  As I said, make room for Cara Luft…before she kicks your door down!”

JAMES HODGES, ROADSIDE ATTRACTIONS (Saskatoon)
“Listening to Cara Luft is like sipping a fine cognac, warm and smooth at the beginning, stirringly captivating by the end.”

ANDY MOREL, ROSSLAND ARTS COUNCIL
“…a truly Canadian diamond in the rough  –  no need for cutting or polishing.”  –

ROBERT MILLS, MAVERICK MAGAZINE
“I just had the privilege to listen to a few tracks from Cara Luft’s new album “The Light Fantastic.”  [These tracks]  are indeed fantastic and I hope it is not too long before she graces our UK shores!”

JAMES PARTRIDGE, Presenter, Live at the Institute (UK)
“When Cara Luft breezes into the room and positions her multi-coloured vibrant self onto centre-stage, you somehow know that you are in safe hands by her presence and grin alone. An hour or so later, after a musical trip taking in everything from Alaska to the Blackwater, insistent riffs still jangling in your ears and melodies stuck with you forever, you are a now a part of her world and she a part of yours. That is what proper musicians do, and Cara Luft is one of those.”

PAUL SYMES, THE BLACK SHEEP INN (Quebec)
“… a truly lovely concert, brilliantly performed, and an artistic success.  Cara and Hugh were delightful to work with in every way, and were utterly gracious and professional every step of the way.  I would be thrilled to have them back!”

RICK FENTON, WESTERN CANADIAN MUSIC ALLIANCE and FORMER ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, Winnipeg Folk Festival
“Cara’s voice, songwriting, guitar playing, energy, passion, fire, sense of humor, and zest for life make her a great addition to any festival lineup.”

BLACKIE AND THE RODEO KINGS
“You f*%&# blew me away!” – Tom Wilson
