The Fernie Writers’ Conference is pleased to announce the addition of Cara Luft to its fold of instructors.

Cara will be teaching a handful of budding songwriters how to craft a memorable song.

Singer/songwriter/guitarist extraordinaire Cara Luft is that rare artist steeped in folk and traditional roots music almost from birth yet willing to alter that fabric, stretch the boundaries, not afraid to bend genres and styles.

An original founding member of The Wailin’ Jennys, Cara is wowing audiences and critics with her solo performances across North America and Europe, earning a solid reputation as one of Canada’s finest live performers whose engaging, down-home style is wrapped in a delicious sense of humour. Although she has a Juno award and many other nominations under her belt, there’s nothing pretentious about her. Cara’s the real deal. And that sense of honesty, integrity, personality and spontaneity permeates and resonates throughout both her music and her live shows.
