Karen Johnson started performing at the Café Carpe in 1998. She says she counts herself so very fortunate to have the opportunity to perform at such a wonderful place!
After retiring early from teaching 4th grade, she treasures spending time with her golf-crazed husband, visiting with her two grown boys, taking care of her two cats (one of which she swears is her reincarnated Golden Retriever, Lady), gardening, feeding her fine-feathered friends, and finding every excuse possible to get outside and enjoy nature. So much for housework!
Joan Baez, Nanci Griffith, and Alison Krauss are just a few of her favorite artists. Riding along with her dad in his old Chevy truck sparked her passion for old country songs of which a few find their way onto her song list.
Give her a listen here.
