About this event

Hope permeates Heal the Heart, the new album from eclectic Americana/world-fusion band The Deer’s Cry. It’s perhaps surprising, then, that the 10 songs on the band’s second record, set for release on September 30, 2022, grew out of dark, sad times.

With Heal the Heart, The Deer’s Cry explores the beauty and symbolism of the spiritual, consistently reminding listeners of both the vastness of our universe and the importance of their role in it. In the spirit of acknowledging something larger than one’s self, the band’s name, The Deer’s Cry, comes from a translation of the title of an Old Irish prayer, St. Patrick’s Breastplate, which reflects on the natural beauty, personal strength, and protection given by a higher power. 

Sonically, the musical voices and experiences of Karen and band members Patrick Atwater (bassist/arranger), Bryan Brock (drummer/percussionist), and Will MacLean (banjoist/guitarist) create a mystical intertwining of bluegrass, Celtic, classical, folk, gospel, jazz, rock, and world music. Lyrically, Karen is both introspective and focused on a bigger picture, often connecting her newly written words to classic poetry, traditional prayers, and older texts.
