A dynamic performer with pitch perfect vocals; Karen Barnett has appeared nationally and internationally performing at some of the UK’s biggest venues, including the O2 Arena & Lakeside Country Club.
 
Karen’s silky smooth tones are often likened to such great singers as Karen Carpenter, Eva Cassidy and Rumur, however it’s the variety of music Karen has to offer that makes her so appealing.
 
A little something for everyone – a song for all occasions! Disco, Soul, Motown, Pop, Rock, Country, Rock ‘n’ Roll & Jazz, Karen’s repertoire has a song from the 40s up to the present day.  Whether your celebration is a wedding, birthday, anniversary, dinner dance or simply a well deserved night out, Karen can make your event the one to remember.
 
Karen has also sung backing vocals for Foreigner and enjoyed much success with her own Karen Carpenter tribute show and 60s/70s stage production Step Right Back.
 
All songs can be used for any gig and any requests can be rehearsed in advance of parties and weddings. Karen has full liability insurance through Equity and all stage equipment used is PAT Tested.
