She toured Australia performing as a soloist and with the Latin American all women group Amaranta. She won awards at the 1986 and 1988 International Jazz and Pop Harp Competitions in Boston, and as a result received a full scholarship to the University of Arizona. In 1990, she recorded her first CD, Tinges of Colour, for voice and harp. Since then she has recorded 5 other albums of music genres including classical, jazz, Celtic, and meditational. She has since toured the world performing in Japan, England, Ireland, Scotland, Europe, Asia and Australia as well as throughout the US, including here in Los Angeles. Carolyn has had the pleasure of performing on some of the best stages and auditoriums in the world, and has recorded for both the film and music industries.
