bodhrán, concertina, clogging, vocals
Claire fills out the bass of STEAM’s music with the rich heart-beat of her bodhran (Irish drum) plus other percussion including clogging. Her extensive background in singing allows the band to feature vocal numbers in concerts and during dances as sung waltzes. We joke that she is the “Nashville Certified Utility Musician” because she also sometimes pulls out her anglo concertina, or steps away from the band to call contras or ceilis. When not playing music, Claire is a Sustainability and Water Planning Director at a Council of Governments, a dance organizer, and handles STEAM bookings; firstname.lastname@example.org (520) 869-8553.
