"Karen has long been something of a heroine to me... Her style is at times traditional, then moves surprisingly at a tangent, making it more interesting in an unexpected way. And her whistle playing is excellent." — Irish Edition, Philadelphia
Karen is also a Certified Music Practitioner® (CMP), and is trained to play healing hammered dulcimer music at the bedside of those who are ill and/or dying.

The hammered dulcimer is an engaging instrument that dates back to the 14th century and spread all around the world. It is a trapezoid box played with small wooden hammers.
