Karen Burciaga is a versatile violinist and fiddler based in Boston. She performs classical music, 1920's jazz, pop songs, and Irish tunes in many different settings including concert halls, churches, historic homes and colonial taverns. Karen often performs with cello, classical guitar, harp, or bagpipes but is always available for solo engagements.

A classically trained musician with a Master of Music degree, Karen has also explored various folk fiddle traditions and has studied Renaissance and Baroque music extensively. She plays with Seven Times Salt, an early music ensemble dedicated to music of the 16th-17th centuries. Her trio, Ulster Landing, presents folk music of England, Ireland, and Scotland on fiddle, harp, and Uilleann (Irish) pipes. She recently became the fiddler for Newpoli, a Southern Italian folk band. In addition, her knowledge of classical violin repertoire gives her a wide variety of music to select from.

Karen is happy to work with clients to find just the right music for each and every occasion.

Karen was EXCELLENT, from day one all the way through to the day of. She periodically checked in with me throughout the planning of my wedding and offered a variety of suggestions for songs which I found incredibly helpful. On the day of, Karen arrived early and played the most beautiful music. I would highly recommend using her for any event!

Such amazing talent! Karen was very professional and helped me chose songs for our wedding - she even chose some for me when I couldn't decide. So many people came up to me after the ceremony to tell me how fantastic she was and how much they enjoyed her music. Karen found me after the ceremony to shake my hand and congratulate us - very friendly, professional. Just awesome! Thank you so much Karen!
