About Charlie King & Karen Brandow

http://www.charlieking.org

 

Charlie King and Karen Brandow are musical storytellers and political satirists. Their repertoire covers a century and a half and four continents. They perform with the sweet and precise harmony of life partners. They sing and write passionately about the extraordinary lives of ordinary people.

Charlie King has been at the heart of American folk music for half a century. His songs have been sung by Pete Seeger, Holly Near, Ronnie Gilbert, John McCutcheon, Arlo Guthrie, Peggy Seeger, Chad Mitchell and Judy Small. His political musical influences are the folk music revival of the 1960’s, and the protest songs of the Civil Rights and Vietnam War era.

Karen Brandow has been performing with Charlie King since 1998. While doing human rights work in Guatemala from 1986-1994, Karen studied voice, performance and classical guitar. There she broadened her repertoire to include Latin American music of the “Nueva CanciĆ³n” or New Song Movement. She performs in English and Spanish.
