Karen Matheson has captivated audiences around the world and sold over a million records as the lead singer of the best-selling, internationally-renowned Celtic supergroup Capercaillie, recognized by Billboard magazine as "the most exciting and vibrant band in the field of Celtic music today."
Downriver, her third solo album, is a powerful collection of traditional and contemporary songs in English and Gaelic, delivered in a striking, paired-down acoustic setting. The album features special guests Donal Lunny, James MacIntosh (Shooglenifty), and Michael McGoldrick, and is produced by Donald Shaw (Capercaillie, Karan Casey).
