More About Lauren Knatz author of The Gatekeeper

Order The GatekeeperLauren Knatz has performed acoustic guitar with vocal accompaniment for seniors, hospice patients, and special needs populations for over twenty years. She is an author, folk musician, and storyteller who collects the stories and favorite music of those residing in all levels of care in Central Pennsylvania and Maryland.

Lauren is a strong advocate for those living with life-altering conditions and her work focuses on using music as a tool to give voice to the memories stored within the context of a song. She believes that a song can be compared to an individual’s life - when you understand the inspiration and historical context behind a song, the notes resonate with deeper clarity. Similarly, when we are empowered to reflect upon our own lives, we begin to recognize each turning point as a channel to greater peace and understanding.

Lauren’s work has gained the recognition of York Hospital Family Medicine, where she has presented to resident doctors integrating Narrative Medicine, a person centered, clinical approach from Columbia University that honors the narrative of the patient to improve communication, instill empathy and promote healing. Lauren has also presented her work to nursing students at the Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences, demonstrating the benefits of using music to de-escalate anxiety and promote dignity for mental health patients.

In a highly creative and inspirational presentation, Lauren skillfully immerses her audience into each scene by interweaving the stories, songs and courageous spirits of those residing in palliative care and hospice. Anyone who has walked beside a loved one in need will benefit from this unique presentation into the healing power of music.
