Lara Kroeker Music


Lara Kroeker is an accomplished performing violin player and singer who is embracing the electronic age while re-inventing her traditional classical and folk roots.

Lara builds foundations of familiar and discovers new sounds by looping violin and vocals to build song structures and the results are sounds of lush orchestral madness. She has played and toured across Canada and The US with indie groups Attics and Cellars, Sparrow (North America 2007), The Beauticians (Folk Festivals), The Insomniacs, The Mudlarks. She played with K-OS backup on the George Strombolopolis show, played festival stages with the legendary Odetta, performed on Canada Live on CBC Radio 2 with Attics and Cellars and in the Vancouver Philharmonic.

She also hosts a bi-monthly live concert series called the "Eastside Music Series". This started from a recording party where musicians would come from different communities, genres, ages and backgrounds and record a few songs in one take with CBC Engineer Derek Bird. The recording was a gift to each other and had no other purpose. It has evolved into a night of live music that hosts many of these same musicians.

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything."


These songs were written over the course of a year and I continue to add to the "Demo" each month. My philosophy is to create and leave the idea of perfection behind. It is what it is.

“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent."
-Victor Hugo
