Description

Thomas Muir Festival 2017

KAREN MATHESON

Internationally renowned as the compelling vocalist of Celtic super-group Capercaillie, awarded an OBE, Best Gaelic Singer from the inaugural Scottish folk awards.

Described by Sean Connery as having ‘a throat that is surely touched by God',

Karen Matheson is truly one of Scotland’s most respected singers with an astonishing career spanning more than 30 years. Having produced four acclaimed solo albums, her 2016 offering, Urram, is a musical love letter to her families’ Hebridean roots that has been declared a showstopper… sublime’ by fROOTS.

In addition to her cameo appearance in the 1995 movie, Rob Roy in which she sang a Scottish lament, Karen has been involved in numerous collaborations including the award winning BBC series, Transatlantic Sessions where over the last decade she has filmed tracks with artists like James Taylor, Emmylou Harris, The McGarrigle Sisters, Nanci Griffith and Paul Brady.

Other collaborations include Algerian singer, Idir, Portuguese star, Dulce Pontes and as lead vocalist with Breton guitarist, Dan Ar Braz’s super-group, Heritage de Celts.
