JASG's Jeanne Darke writes: "We're congratulating ourselves on being 'canny' and 'streetwise' (forgive the pun), in having captured, for our opening concert, the much in demand Karen Street and her "Streetworks" band. Karen's reputation as a composer of offbeat and witty compositions are a delight and her skill on both the tenor sax and accordion (acc.by renowned Mike Outram on guitar, Andy Tweed on sax, and WillHarris on bass, is thrilling. Versatile Karen, who founded the all female "The Fairer Sax" has lately been performing with Welsh National Opera!  Her compositions for childrens' instrumental groups are well known and widely used. A delightful and exciting opening concert."

Karen has a rare ability to create really memorable tunes. Couple this with her skill as an arranger and a group of players whose individual and collective sounds are truly beautiful and the results are performances and recordings that audiences really engage with, that are sometimes intimate and often witty.   Her influences are wide-ranging; jazz, folk, the inevitable influence of Tango (so often associated with the accordion), with nods to Central Europe.
