DUNDEE Rep Theatre is to present Karen Matheson in a rare outing of her intimate solo show on Saturday, May 26 at 7.30 pm.
She will be performing with her long-time collaborators - James Grant on guitar, Donald Shaw on piano and special guests.
Widely recognised as the compelling vocals of Celtic super-group Capercaillie, Karen’s life in the limelight began with her performing as a child in her local village hall on the West coast of Scotland.
She was given an OBE in the 2006 New Years Honours list, an astonishing achievement to add to her award of “Best Gaelic singer” from the inaugural Scottish folk awards. With Capercaillie Karen has enjoyed a stellar career and as a solo performer she has been involved in various projects of collaboration including the award winning BBC series Transatlantic Sessions, where she recorded tracks with Emmylou Harris, The McGarrigle Sisters, Nanci Griffith, Rufus Wainwright and a host of respected musicians. She also recorded and toured as lead vocalist on Heritage de Celts, a supergroup project in France. Ticket details from 01382 223530 or www.dundeerep.co.uk
