Ruth Karn

Ruth Karn is a composer who has written piano pieces, songs and choral works. She is also a gifted writer of words for music, whose expressive lyrics match the strongly emotional presence of her musical settings. Largely self-taught, she has pursued a varied career that has encompassed nursing as well as periods spent working within the legal and insurance sectors. On what she is happy to describe as her unconventional musical journey, these have been fruitful diversions nonetheless, for she finds particular inspiration in people, places and events as triggers for her composing, which happens in the interstices of a busy life of juggling professional, family and caring commitments.
