Channeling the music of her ancestors, 6th generation fiddler and bilingual singer Clare Sands is a unique force in Irish music. Creating boundary breaking Fearless Folk music inspired by her travels around Ireland and the world, Sands sings for the young and the old, the brave and the bold. Wowing audiences with her groundbreaking traditional style and warrior-like energy, Clare performs on fiddle, guitar, percussion & vocals. Recent performances include Celtic Connections, Folk Alliance, the Irish Arts Center NYC, Glastonbury Festival, Body & Soul, and All Together Now. Throughout 2021 Clare collaborated with some of Ireland’s finest folk and traditional musicians, including Susan O’Neill, Steve Cooney, Tommy Sands, Brídín, and Liam Ó Maonlaí on her unique project “Tírdhreacha agus Fuaimdhreacha (Landscapes & Soundscapes),” described by Mark Radcliffe (The Folk Show, BBC2) as “Hypnotic, Tribal, and Full of Life.”  She has also played with Hothouse Flowers, Kíla, Imelda May, Mary Coughlan, and many others. Clare’s highly anticipated self-titled 2022 album explores tradition, the sea, and the power of women, celebrating resilience, love, and hope.
