Karen Reed / Press

“Karen Reed and Crossbow played two shows at our establishment (Showplace Dinner Theatre in The Black Forest Inn) and quite simply, brought the house down with their incredible musicianship, professional stage presence and timely audience rapport. Karen is undoubtedly one of the finest fiddlers in Canada. Her vast repertoire of material ranges from Irish jigs to Quebecois fiddling and everything in between. The audience loved it. I made sure to book them back as soon as their show was over. Keith Burton Entertainment Director Showplace Dinner Theatre ”

“I had a great opportunity to see one of Karen's shows at the Robbie Burns Day celebration at the Black Forest Inn. Karen not only ‘reeled in' the audience with her passionate fiddling but she left people wanting more. She had a charisma and ability to speak to the audience through her playing that held my attention the entire two hours. I can't wait to get another opportunity to see another show. Chris ”

fan testimony

“Karen was one of my instructors at a weekend fiddle camp. Karen made the camp fun! She led the jam sessions and got the crowd going with her humour, enthusiasm and great fiddle playing. Karen also took the time to know her students on a personal level. As well, she provided a lot of great tips for me to improve at playing the fiddle, and believe me I need them! If you get a chance to have Karen as a teacher or to hear her play, don't miss it! Gord ”

personal testimony

“Karen was my instructor at a two-day workshop fiddle workshop. (I am an adult student.) Karen was extremely encouraging, explained her instructions well, made me feel quite comfortable and was certainly great fun. I would highly recommend her as an instructor in any capacity. She is a very talented, energetic and exuberant lady. Catherine ”
