Karen Axelrod & Elizabeth Rose (USA)

Karen Axelrod left the world of classical music over 30 years ago, and has found her home in the folk world. She is highly regarded for her creative piano playing at English, American and Scottish dance events around the United States and abroad. Her improvisational playing is lyrical yet touched with humor and whimsy. Karen is a member of the bands: Foxfire, Peregrine Road, Axelrod-Martin duo, Old World Charm School, and Alchemy. She also plays accordion and tours with the renowned long sword team, Orion.

Elizabeth Rose is a freelance musician, with a degree in viola performance. She has performed with numerous classical and baroque orchestras throughout the United States. Liz is also a certified Suzuki teacher, and has mentored numerous students in classical music, as well as exposing them to the rich world of Playford and traditional tunes.

Together, Karen and Liz delight in playing for English Country Dancing, as well as waltz events.
