Karen Lee Andrews and her dynamic rhythm section hit the stage at The Old Church on the Hill, Sunday 20 August 2023
Karen Lee Andrews is in possession of a powerful sense of artistic purpose. Surrounded by music her entire life, Karen’s career to date has largely revolved around classic soul and rhythm and blues. The influence of soul, gospel and Karen’s Polynesian background continues to inform the music she creates. Karen’s new EP ‘Edin’ takes a more comprehensive journey through soul and blues music, while providing a candid expression of her personal identity.
Karen’s songcraft is built on a thorough knowledge of blues, gospel and soul music and motored by an undeniable hunger to connect. Yet the defining ingredient is Karen’s unshakeable artistic passion.
Andrews mostly tours as a formidable trio, teaming up with Yanya Boston on drums and Adam Ventoura on bass – two exceptional musicians. This dynamic band is exhilarating to witness!

The door charge is kept as low as possible to ensure accessibility to all. Under 12s free and, although drinks are available for sale, the focus is on THE MUSIC.
