About this Act

Kara began her musical career in 1995, covering a variety of musical genres, working with bands on the live circuit and in the studio, before finding her niche in jazz and musical theatre.

She spent many years in London, working on the West End stage and with bands as a session singer; Kara then returned to her native Scotland to embark on some musical projects of her own.

Influenced by many of the jazz greats such as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Nina Simone, Kara pays tribute to artists of this bygone era in her own inimitable style, whilst remaining true to the original artists.

When not on the stage, Kara can be found teaching vocals and songwriting with her jazz/funk/blues band and plans to record an album in the near future.

Kara can cater for all occasions, from small intimate functions to large corporate events. Whether you’re after a gently-paced bluesy set or a lively, entertaining swing show, sets can be tailored to suit. A more modern/upbeat set list can also be included for events which require a more eclectic mix of music.

Set List

Nice and easy
Devil may care
Summertime
Cry me a river
What a difference a day makes
Beyond the sea
Fever
My baby just cares
All of me
Let there be love
Nice work if you can get it
Fly me to the moon
Night and day
Mad about the boy
Cheek to cheek
It’s alright with me
Let’s face the music and dance
It had to be you
Moondance
Come fly with me
Feeling good
That’s life
That old devil called love
Witchcraft
Mack the knife
You make me feel so young
Lady is a tramp
Get happy
It don’t mean a thing
Don’t rain on my parade
Popsicle toes
Every time we say goodbye
Black coffee
Sway
Your heart is as black as night
My funny valentine
