bodhrán, flatfooting, vocals, concertina
Claire adds the bass and the heartbeat with her rich and sensitive bodhrán playing or sets down the rhythm with her foot percussion and Old-Time flatfooting. She also sings and has written the lyrics to many of STEAM’s waltzes and concert songs. Anglo concertina is one of her many musical passions and she also has a 20 year+ career as a caller – sometimes stepping out from the band to call the dance too! When not playing music or organizing music and dance things, Claire is the Director of Pima County Cooperative Extension at the University of Arizona.
