Landscape of the Heart

With all the amazing autoharp and dulcimer playing you'd expect, Karen pays tribute to her Kansas roots with the new title song and others like "Fields of Gold" by Sting and "Heart of the Heartland" by Peter Ostroushko. The CD also features vocals, mandolin and guitar by Karen, with guests on fiddle, cello, bass, and Janita Baker on dulcimer for "Spanish Fandango," their duet that's a festival concert favorite. With fiddle tunes, waltzes, songs and originals, there's something for everyone. $15.00
