KAREN TWEED, mercurial and lyrical accordionist extraordinaire is exploring this amazing instrument’s eloquence, hilarity and sentimentality in a new series of solo concerts and one-day accordion workshops around the UK.
Her solo CD, ‘Essentially Invisible to the Eye’ forms the basis of her solo show, illustrating a myriad of influences from Ireland, France and her own pen, punctuated with her many stories of people, places and wonderful observations from her 27 years on the notational road.
She is also a respected illustrator and designer which is now illustrated in her first publication of her compositions – many of which she will be playing, re-telling the stories behind them and taking them as musical stories to develop in her accordion workshops. She may even shed a little light on her other love, cartoons. . .
