Kathryn Claire returns to the SFS stage, after an absence of four years. She exhibits a charisma and grace on stage matched only by her truly unique voice and rare ability to move seamlessly across genres. She has spent years cultivating her own style and approach to music as a violinist, guitar player, singer, and songwriter. Strong fundamentals from her classical and traditional music background combined with an innate ability to improvise has made her a favorite at venues, festivals and institutions around the world. She has toured and performed extensively in the US, Japan, India, Holland, Belgium and France.
Kathryn Claire’s solo albums include Wanderer, Homespun, Morning Comes Too Soon, Shimmering Blue. The Willamette Week praised Morning Comes Too Soon saying “Claire’s rich, bell-clear alto and precise playing serve her songs with emotional generosity and evident sincerity” and described her voice as “a part of the scene’s very fabric”. She has collaborated with an impressive roster of national and international artists including Portland-based Hanz Araki with whom Kathryn Claire recorded and released a four album celtic music project in 2012. The Irish Edition described Kathryn’s voice as “strong, deeply moving” and The Irish Post included the duo on their top 10 best album list of 2013.
She is currently working on a new album titled, Bones Will Last. It is an album both hopeful and heartbreaking, with deeply personal and starkly universal themes featuring performances by Zak Borden, Allen Hunter, Ara Lee and Don Henson. Bones Will Last explores Claire’s voice as a songwriter as well as instrumental composer blending her love of classical, traditional and original music.
This concert features her collaboration with Zak Borden (mandolin) and Allen Hill (bass) and includes material from her soon to be released Bones Will Last CD.
