ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Karen Mueller's touch, timing and taste make her a true virtuoso."
--Bluegrass Unlimited

Named after a quote from a reviewer describing Karen's clear melody picking style, Clarity is an upbeat collection of old-time, Celtic and contemporary pieces featuring autoharp and dulcimer, with banjo legend Tony Trischka, Uilleann (Irish) bagpiper Timothy Britton, fiddle, cello and more. One of Music Hound Folk Guide's most recommended albums for autoharp.

Karen Mueller is one of the top autoharp and mountain dulcimer players today. Since winning the International Autoharp Championship in 1986, she has made her mark on the acoustic music scene as both an interpreter of tradition and an innovator, performing with such legendary artists as Liz Carroll (all-Ireland fiddle champion) and Tony Trischka (banjo). Karen has been touring coast to coast for over ten years, garnering rave reviews from LA to Boston. Her musical chops are well-developed in the Appalachian and Celtic styles (she also tours with the former lead singer from Riverdance), but her curiosity leads her into the realm of contemporary writers like Leo Kottke, Sting, Edgar Meyer and the Beatles. Check her out-hearing is believing!

"She's taking the Autoharp into new and exciting territory."
--Dirty Linen

"Karen is a truly remarkable musician..."
--Dulcimer Players News

"In the hands of a few gifted people, the Autoharp can swell into the sound of a whole orchestra. Karen Mueller is one of those few."
--Minneapolis Star Tribune
