ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"At the still point, there the dance is...."
-T.S. Eliot

Visualize a swirling dance, and you're at the center. This is the experience of Still Point. Beginning with a jig learned from the amazing Swedish group Väsen, Still Point unifies a wonderful range of styles from old-time fiddle tunes and Irish pieces to "Linus and Lucy" (the Peanuts theme--played on bass dulcimer!), work by Norman Blake, Edgar Meyer, Sting, and the original title cut by Karen.

Still Point is an exciting instrumental collection featuring Karen's award-winning autoharp and dulcimer, plus bass dulcimer, guitar, fiddle, flute, uillean pipes, Northumbrian smallpipes, cello, concertina, low whistle and bouzouki.

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!

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

"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
