As a storyteller, singer, songwriter & musician, Karen’s unique performances combine music & tale to teach, engage, encourage & tickle the funny bone. Her collaboration of character & story reveal colorful images in the minds of listeners. From stage to elementary classrooms, campfires to coffee houses, Karen’s music, voice & stories inspire audiences of all ages. Linking her music & theatrical work with the traditions of Storytelling, Karen incorporates physical animation, characters, stories & songs both old & new. Accompanying herself on AUTOHARP, she creates an energetic experience of song & story. Karen also gets her audiences involved, with her unique collection of “call & response”, & “make some rhythm”, songs.

Here’s what listeners had to say about Karen’s programs –

“As a Storyteller, you catch us up in the moment. As a musician and songwriter, you know what will get us toe tapping and swaying to the music. You have a heart for kids of all ages.”

“It was one of the best presentations and most effective use of funds from our PTO that we have had in years! The hands-on, personal attention the students received made them grow in self confidence and in skills.”

“Karen had the children engaged, singing, and also asking “Does she have to leave now? She was the perfect entertainment for both our neighborhood camp-out and our elementary school family night.”
