Whether it’s the rhythms of reggae, rock or folk, Karo Lin’s music is versatile. The singer-songwriter from Leipzig will take to stage at the Inner Courtyard Festival in Villingen on Sunday 28 August from 8pm.

VS-Villingen – The songs of singer-songwriter Caro Lin from Leipzig are handcrafted and honest, typical of the independent folk genre. Emotionally, but at the same time full of strength, she sings about what fills life over and over again. A little love here, a little life there, a touch of longing elsewhere. Her songs show a lot of heart and always a bit of her personality.

The second album “Outgrow” was released in 2020

Karo Lynn combines these sentiments in her first album “Frames” from 2016. In 2020 she will release her second album “Outgrow”. Richer in detail, more complex and profound, her music with her extraordinarily powerful voice, combined with her band, makes her an emotional event.

Her songs build an interplay of nearness and distance, expressing a turmoil that does not go unnoticed by the audience. Caro Lin is simply real: she processes real experiences and raises them to an abstract level and thus creates a connection with her audience.

Wild gay meets rough street chanson and protest song.
