With a particular interest in pipe music, Karen has played with Allan MacDonald in his acclaimed pibroch concerts, and for the National Piping Centre’s 2013 Ceòl na Piòba concert.
As a composer, Karen has produced new works for Celtic Connections’ New Voices series and the Distil showcase concerts for the Scottish Traditional Music Trust and has published her own series of harp music books, including Key Techniques for Harp in 2012.
