Folk At The New Room returns on Thursday 21 February with a concert featuring Karen Tweed, one of the leading lights on the UK and international folk scenes.
Karen Tweed is the mercurial, wacky and elegant English accordion queen, known for ground-breaking collaborations (Kathryn Tickell, The Poozies, Swåp, Two Duos Quartet, May Monday) and inspirational teaching. Her stunning solo album Essentially Invisible to the Eye is a beautiful suite, taking us on an autobiographical musical journey, illustrating how much the accordion has become Karen’s voice and pen and muse.
One woman, one instrument … her touch and musicality is quite extraordinary, breaking accordionesque preconceptions and boundaries. She has a box full of musical treasures to share.
“I honestly can’t remember the last time I enjoyed folk-music as much…”
