See what people have to say abour Karen & Paul's performances:

"Dan REALLY enjoyed the concert!  I don't think he had ever been to something quite like that.  He was fascinated with the harp guitar and loved the way Karen 'danced' with the dulcimer while she played."

personal comments to M.M.

"Thanks, again for hosting the House Concert!  Karen and Paul are amazing and I love the fact we get to hear old, old music that might have been lost to many of us!"

Love, Mary

“I thought you would like to know we have had some very enthused feedback from audience members. I know your music was a really special experience for some people, including John and myself.

Also, Paul's workshop was highly praised by each student. Great job!”

Karen and Paul"Thank you for including Robert and me in such a unique and wonderful gathering.  Robert and I loved the music, but having the opportunity to meet interesting people like Karen and Paul was an added bonus.  It was a warm and magical evening and we thank you again for letting us be part of it. "


“What an enjoyable evening! The music was.

They are wonderful entertainers as well as musicians. Can't thank you enough for including me on your guest list. Janell, Maureen and I talked about the evening all the way home.

We had not heard of the concept of Home Concerts before and it was an enlightening experience. Thank you both again so much."


"I had never been to one before, and really enjoyed it.  Karen and Paul are not only talented musicians; but also wonderfully funny entertainers.  Bravo!

I was so happy to drive back to Smithville this afternoon and listen to their CD."


"I was so impressed with the House Concert!    I've never been to one, or even heard of them.    What a concept!    ...And to think I was included on the guest list, just makes me smile.   

I enjoyed Karen and Paul, not just for their music but their personalities."
