“Poetic and soulful” and “A riotousily fun time” are just a couple of
ways folks have described singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist,
Kara Kulpa. Originally hailing from the midwest, Kulpa uprooted and
moved cross-country to Cambridge, MA, in the spring of 2010. In the fall
of 2011, she hit the road again in support of her second
full-length album, The Water’s Edge. Recorded at the Signature Sounds
Studio under the esteemed engineering of Mark Thayer (Dave Carter and
Tracy Grammar), and produced by Dave Golden (HBO’s Treme/Sundance Film
Festivals), this album features performances by nationally recognized
artists including Richard Gates (bass), Kris Delmhorst (cello/vocals),
Chris Merenda (banjo) and Brad Wentworth (percussion).

Since the release of her initial EP, Any Given Day, in May of 2005,
Kulpa has toured country as a solo act as well as in conjunction with
various other acts. She has shared the stage with nationally recognized
artists including Rufus Wainwright, Eddie Money, Danny Schmidt and Kris
Delmhorst. During the Spring of 2006, along a road which spanned from
Boston to New Orleans, Kulpa collected a batch of live recordings and
self-produced a mix entitled Incomplete. To add to her recorded
collection, Kulpa has appeared on several other projects including
National Geographic’s 2010 documentary, “After The Spill: The Last
Catch” (guitar/violin/”candolin”), Ryan Fitzsimmons’ 2011 release “Cold
Sky” (violin/vocals/slide guitar), Shelley Miller’s 2006 release
“Morning Somewhere” (violin/vocals) and Amanda Sena’s 2006 release “Only
Makes Me Stronger” (violin/mandolin/vocals).

From Eddie’s Attic to Tulane University, audience members have commented
on Kulpa’s level of enthusiasm and charisma during performances. House
of Abundant Kindness House Concert Series said, “Kara Kulpa has a charm
and personality that make you want to be her best friend…” She’s also
received critical acclaim for her seamless mastery of instruments. The
Daily Vidette boasted her “prodigal-like ability to pick up and play any
stringed instrument,” and Segment of Society Productions called her,
“…a master on the fiddle, mandolin and guitar.” Along with performing
solo, Kulpa regularly supports an eclectic list of Boston-based and
nationally-touring acts. Visit the shows schedule on this website to see when and where she’s performing
