Widely recognised as the haunting vocals of Celtic super-group Capercaillie, Karen Matheson has earned many plaudits over her career including an OBE in 2006 and ‘Best Gaelic singer’ in the inaugural Scottish folk awards. Karen’s mesmerizing vocals have captured audiences worldwide and for her Lakeside performance she is joined by the stellar band of James Mackintosh (percussion), Donald Shaw (piano/accordion) and Ewen Vernal (double bass). "Spellbinding and evocative... She takes folk music to a celestial high." New York Times
