A note from Karen:   I think you can tell how much fun it was to make music with Larry Bjornson, Dave Staples, David Burton and Chris Mitchell!  Scott Ferguson and Mark Sawatzki filmed the show videos. Scott made the "on-site" videos with me and Scott & I edited them.

"The show was well-produced, Sound was well mixed and camera angles and fading were well done too. Accessing the show was easy and seamless."  - MC  

"Very, well done, the overall production was perfect. There was strong chemistry between Karen and the band and it was obvious they loved playing together. Karen’s intro to each song was one of my favourite parts. I really appreciated the insight Karen gave regarding her inspiration and the subtleties in the songs’ arrangements."  - SW  

"Karen and the band were amazing! What a great group of musicians. I loved the variety in the numbers. I think my favourite was "Breath", very touching."  - ES  

"Masterfully done. I was drawn in more than I expected for watching the show in a brightly-lit kitchen on an iPad."  - AM
