Kara Grainger grew up in the suburbs of Sydney, New South Wales and at the age of 16 formed a band. Umpteen years later, she’s still got a band but lives in Nashville.

Combining tasteful blues and slide guitar, soulful vocals and a heartfelt approach to songwriting, Kara’s builds on her early influences of Memphis blues and Stax Records and New Orleans blues to encompass the LA scene where she lived and recorded before moving to Nashville.

Her debut solo album, “Grand and Green River” received critical acclaim and remained in the top 30 of the Americana Charts for 38 straight weeks in 2008. Having planned to just stay a year in the US, Grainger instead made it her base, and recorded her next three records there.

For TwickFolk, Kara takes a break from the full band shows of her summer tour and will be performing solo, for a more intimate experience.
