Cara Luft with Neil Osborne at The GRAND

Friday 22 March 2024 - 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. She will be joined by a cast of friends and special guest artists who share her sense of adventure and joyful music-making, as well as her passion to explore, collaborate and celebrate. For the Calgary GRAND Theatre show, presented by Fish Creek Concerts, Cara will be joined by her producer and close friend Neil Osborne (54-40). Neil is Canadian rock royalty, equipped with a folk singer's heart. He's penned signature songs such as "I Go Blind", "One Gun" and "Ocean Pearl", with lyrics ranging from politically astute observations to the most innocent love song and everything in between. And Cara? 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!” Join Cara and Neil and other special guests for a one-of-a-kind unique performance full of musical surprises. - Event Details
