KAREN JOHNSON grew up in West Allis, WI, holding dear to her heart the old country songs she’d hear while riding along in her dad’s old Chevy truck. At a young age, Karen learned to play the Tamburitza and sing harmony as a member of the American Croatian Silver Strings Tamburitzans. Now playing the guitar, she has sung and played professionally since 1998. One of her first and most memorable performances was playing guitar and singing in her own hometown for West Allis Western Days. She has also performed at the Jefferson County Fair, Whitewater 4th of July Festival, and the Rock County Fair, to name a few. In Fort Atkinson, you might catch her at the Farmers Market, but her most favorite place to perform is in the wonderful listening room of the Cafe Carpe. Karen sings songs of her favorite artists including Joan Baez, Nanci Griffith, and Alison Krauss. She chooses songs that touch her heart and hopes they will touch yours also.
