14th August 2018 @ Poetrylive
8PM at the Thirsty Dog, 469 K’rd
Guest Musician: Karen Plimmer
For as long as she could talk and reach the keys on the piano Karen has had something to do with music. From writing her first songs at age 8, to studying with the likes of the late Jack Body in Wellington music has been her happy place and a powerful way to express thoughts. She grew up listening to Western Classical music with a grandmother who was generous and took her to numerous concerts. Later she studied Javanese Gamelan in Wellington and in more recent years she has followed her interest in Indian Classical music with Ustad Manjit Singh ji in Auckland.
She is looking forward to sharing some of her own songs, others which have been an go-to from various genres.
