Globe & Mail.. …..”It can’t be done, so don’t even try to turn away from the affecting insistence of Canada’s Luft, who sings like an angel named Joni or Alanis…”

No Depression magazine… “it becomes quite clear that she is indeed a formidable songwriter and performer… [The] lovely Ms. Luft sets the bar for the talented few who’ll follow in her footsteps.”

Songs Of The Banjoman – Derroll Adams

This special show will be in two halves. In one they will be highlighting the life, times and music of banjo player Derroll Adams. Derroll was a legendary figure in the folk music world and made a huge impact on those that played with him. The band will be performing his songs, but in addition, for the last six months they have been speaking with those that knew him and recording those conversations. The show will include spoken word recordings from the likes of Arlo Guthrie, Wizz Jones, Happy Traum, Alan Taylor and more. Derroll was a brilliant banjo player and songwriter, but also a hugely charismatic character.

There will also be audio spoken word throughout from Derroll himself.

In addition the band, including Cara, will be performing a set of fabulous songs incorporating bass, banjo, guitar, pedal steel and harmony singing.

It promises to be a fascinating Sunday afternoon of stories and song.
