Karen released two new singles. October 31st for Hallowe'en 2019 and I Nearly Missed Christmas for Christmas 2019.  hey were co-produced by  Karen and Holly Arsenault, who also plays piano on the recordings, along with Larry Bjornson on bass and recorded , mixed in Scott Ferguson's award-winning studio.  (Actually they are ALL award-winning!)  The other amazing musicians who brought October 31st alive were Ken Shorley on drums and percussion and Donald MacLennan  playing wild gypsy violin. "We had SO much fun making this recording!" Find it on the "music" page of this website. Catherine Little added innovative cello to I Nearly Missed Christmas, along with Holly, Larry, and Scott. More to come.

The Sackville Concert Band performances are on hold until the virus is no longer a threat. Karen looks forward to seeing all of her bandmates again and to singing her original songs plus standards as soon as is possible.
