Thank you very much for the great kick off in 2020! We had 11 concerts and 6 of them were completely sold out, the others very well attended. We couldn’t hope for a better tour. We are already looking forward to our gigs in February (-> dates). Some are already sold out, tickets are selling fast - get yours now!
We’re delighted to present our new video! It was filmed in Glasgow during our Scottish tour in September, and introduces Aimée Farrell Courtney as our new bodhrán player.
The song was written by Kim in thanks for the life of her dad. "Mòran Taing" means "many thanks" in Scots Gaelic.
Thank you all for your lovely comments and well-wishes both to Rolf, and to us, on his leaving the band - they are much appreciated. It is now time to move on, and we would ask you all kindly to welcome our newest member, the amazing Aimée Farrell Courtney, into the CARA family. We have had the chance to play together over the summer and decided that we want to make this permanent.
Aimée is from Co.Meath in Ireland, she won the Bodhrán World Championship in 2010 and works closely with Rolf in organizing Craiceann festival on Inis Oirr every year (that’s how we know her!). She’s teaching at Dublin University and toured with Danú as well as playing in numerous exciting projects and concerts all around the world. We are proud to have her. Leave her a message or come and see us at a gig!
Here is the official video for the title track of our latest album "Yet We Sing".
A song about hope, even in dark times and the healing power of music.
"There is pain, but there will always be laughter
We grieve and we rejoice
When the frost is over, a new spring is dawning
In darkness raise your voice....let us sing!"
