It's a CD! It's a book! It's BOTH!
"The recording captures the exciting arrangements of one of the top autoharp players in the world..."
This enhanced CD is packed with twenty great solo autoharp tunes, played in the rich full melody picking style that you only hear from a master. The "enhanced" part means that if you put the CD into your computer, you get a book with the music that can be printed out so you can learn the tunes yourself. It's written in both standard notation and special autoharp tablature, which is explained in the book.
And it costs the same as a regular CD.
Karen Mueller is one of the top autoharp players today. Since winning the International Autoharp Championship in 1986, she has made her mark on the acoustic music scene as both an interpreter of tradition and an innovator, performing with such legendary artists as Liz Carroll (all-Ireland fiddle champion) and Tony Trischka (banjo). Karen has been touring coast to coast for over ten years, garnering rave reviews from LA to Boston. Her musical chops are well-developed in the Appalachian and Celtic styles (she teaches workshops in North Carolina, and tours with the former lead singer from Riverdance), but her curiosity leads her into the realm of contemporary writers like Leo Kottke, Sting, Edgar Meyer and the Beatles. Check her out-hearing is believing!
"She's taking the Autoharp into new and exciting territory."
"Karen Mueller's touch, timing and taste make her a true virtuoso."
"Karen is a truly remarkable musician..."
--Dulcimer Players News
"In the hands of a few gifted people, the Autoharp can swell into the sound of a whole orchestra. Karen Mueller is one of those few."
--Minneapolis Star Tribune
