Widely recognised as the compelling vocals of Celtic super-group Capercaillie, Karen is immersed in the deep well of traditional songs that have been her inspiration for over 30 years of recording and performing world-wide. Her stunning rendition of “Ae Fond Kiss” stole the show at the closing ceremony of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, to a televised audience of a billion people around the world.  

As a solo performer, Karen has been involved in various projects including the award-winning BBC TV series ‘Transatlantic Sessions’, where she has recorded tracks with artists such as james Taylor, Nanci Griffith, Emmylou Harris, the McGarrigle Sisters and a host of respected Scottish musicians.  Her many other collaborations include Algerian singer Idir, Breton guitarist Dan ar Bras, and Portuguese star Dulce Pontes as well as the late Pete Seeger.

With Capercaillie – “the most exciting and vibrant band in the field of Celtic music today” (Billboard), Karen has enjoyed a stellar career. Capercaillie have sold more than a million albums, perfomed in over 30 countries and written and featured music for the film “Rob Roy”.

“Karen Matheson has a throat that was surely touched by God.”  Sean Connery.
