Karen Street’s latest creative project “Unfurled” is performed by her drumless quartet of accordion (played by Karen herself), saxophone by the honey-toned Andy Tweed, guitar by ever-creative Mike Outram and powerhouse bassist Will Harris.
Karen has that rare ability to create really memorable tunes. Couple this with her skill as an arranger and a group of players whose individual and collective sounds are truly beautiful and the results are performances and recordings that audiences really engage with, that are sometimes intimate and often witty. Her influences are wide-ranging; jazz, folk, the inevitable influence of Tango (so often associated with the accordion), with nods to Central Europe.
