As we try out best to stay safe during the pandemic, live music unfortunately needs to be shelved for a while.  Kara will be ready to hit the ground running as soon as it's safe to do so.

Sugarcreek Road

About Sugarcreek Road

Sugarcreek Road blends a modern potpourri of twang-tinged folk, country, jazz, pop and bluegrass to crate a sound that is as raw and compelling as America itself.  With award winning bluegrass musicians, Kara's original music provides a Prairie Home Companion-like experience with stories of growing up in rural Iowa to being a musician in the Broadway smash hit, Jersey Boys for the past decade.  Kara performs music from her original album, "Hurry Up & Relax" along with great arrangements from artists such as Lyle Lovett, Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss.  Kara's been reviewed as "funny, sweet storytelling, gorgeous vocals, and top-notch musicianship."
