Cara Luft has been more than busy.

Between working on songs for a new album and representing Canada in a unique music partnership project with England, one would think her schedule is pretty much booked.

But that hasn't stopped the former Wailin' Jenny from an early 2014 tour across Western Canada, including a Duncan stop this weekend.

"A lot of the new material and song ideas are around the theme of home. I've been without a home since Christmas 2012 and it's something I long for. It's interesting to see how that desire has crept into my ideas for songs," Luft said in a media release.

Her promotional material describes her as follows: "Reviewers of Cara's live shows talk about her superb musicianship, her humourous anecdotes, her ability to switch between styles, her accomplished songwriting, and the charm of her stage presence.

"That charm and confidence won her a 2013 Galaxie Rising Star Award, as well as a recording grant at one of Canada's newest analog recording studios.  Cara's the real deal, there's nothing pretentious about her.

Luft will be in Duncan on Feb 13 at The Orca Ballroom in the Travelodge Silverbridge Inn. Tickets are $15 advance, $20 at the door. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
