Subject: 'Cara' for your Folk Festival.
From: Georgiansilver
Date: 11 Dec 04 - 12:22 PM

Now that "Cara" from North Lincolnshire have a website with the capability of producing music for you to hear. Please have a listen and be fascinated and delighted by their style of music and the easy listening of all of their three CDs. The other suggestion I would make is that you get them booked for your Festival as I would hazard an educated guess that they will be in big demand soon. My personal favourites on the website are "The Faerie Queen" and "The mayfly"..Go have a listen and assess for yourself the quality and entertainment value of this Folk Trio.
Best wishes..and once again..get 'em booked

For any festival organiser, take a tip. Book these lads, and then tell everyone you were the one that booked them, if reflected glory is your thing. Book them even if it isn't.

Cara are now getting played throughout Europe on Pulse Unsigned, its channel 905 on Sky.
Them without Sky, can listen online, www.pulseunsigned.com, [or it might be .co.uk?
theres a thread about it somwere.
Oaklet tells me they are playing a few Cara tracks, including tHe Fairy Queen, it gets its first play tomorow, I THINK its at 10pm?

Pulse Unsigned is a new radio station set up to give unsigned bands a chance to get heard on the radio, I heard about it on another music website that I use, and posted a thread about it here.
There are a couple of conditions, ie you MUST be unsigned, to qualify for getting played, and they don't want bands doing cover versions, it must be original or trad stuff.

Mike and John will I'm sure be there in spirit.

Listen GUEST RAT or whatever you call yourself. A bit of promotion of people who I know of but am only just getting to know...when they are as good as Cara are...and of course you may take a look at the website the same as anyone else and seek the truth......is not a problem to others so why should it be to you?
Besides, I love Folk music and a promotion of something really good seems to me like I am trying to provide Folkies with the goods!!!!!!Best wishes.

"GUEST an honest man" who lacks the ability to understand some of the good folk music that's around.....perhaps you could tell us about your personal performances guest and what gives you the ability to judge others as not being first rate!. Are you some authority or just a small voice in a thunderstorm?

If he was an honest man, he'd be more than a "GUEST".
He'd also have more than a passing interest in Cara if he knew what REAL FOLK MUSIC WAS...

Honest man, I am sure no one conected with the band would resent you having your opinion. All I would suggest is that you dont right them off without seeing them live or hearing their full body of work. It is always a risk putting "snapshots" of your work up for people to hear.
Most of the glowing comments on Mudcat about Cara come as a result of the release of the most recent CD, and most of the people making those comments are people who have already heard Cara either live or on CD before.
My own view is that the latest CD marks a watershed in terms of developement from the band.......there is nothing particularly different or unusual on it.....it is very much out of the mould of previous Cara CD`s. However to me, it just seems to "come together" much more consistantly this time and moves the band to a different level.
I suspect that is what their other fans have recognised and are responding to in their praise of the CD and the band. At the end of the day, there is always someone better out there......but I honestly think you have missed something "special" and urge you to give them another try. Heck.....it took me 30 years to acknolege that Bob Dylan had "something" so I dont condem you for not "getting it" from the limited exposure that you acknowlege is all you have had. :-)
Other "Guest", if it dont interest you then dont read it. It is quite obvious from the thread title what this thread is about.

Bassic: "It is always a risk putting "snapshots" of your work up for people to hear."

I'd reply that Cara must have thought the "snapshots" worth putting on their website or they surely wouldn't have put them there.

I'm afraid I have to agree with the other guests, the music really doesn't sound at all special.

Cara members and friends are doing their best to promote the band on this messageboard (and the fact that the likes of me have bothered going to their own website suggests they have at least succeeded in doing that) but the music speaks for itself.

The band has a long way to go yet. Just look at the venues they are playing.
