“Kara Barnard is a fine instrumentalist whose talents have graced recordings by many artists as well as her own releases. Often when a performer takes a do-it-all-yourself approach to a recording, it becomes readily apparent that they are more comfortable with one instrument over another. This is not the case with Kara. Although she is a fine guitarist she also shines on mandolin, octave mandolin, Autoharp, mountain dulcimer and banjo.” — Sing Out magazine
