Live Performance | Diary
"..and we stand shoulder to shoulder. Can't you see the banners fly? They're the flags of a future much bolder", Heads Held High - Just Another Working Day.
Described as a 'radical chanteuse', Claire's music has been defined by her passion and her politics. She writes of protest, peace, justice, love and life. Her performances contain a enthralling blend of passionate, playful and political songs.
Her strong views and skills as a social commentator, along with her ability to connect with all types of audience means that Claire is in demand not only as a performer but also as a compère and speaker at events. She is a regular guest and presenter on the BBC and other radio stations too. Claire has established a loyal fan base who appreciate diversity. She performs at festivals, art centres, theatres, clubs, conferences and seminars - from Hackney Empire to house parties and all places in between!
Her performances have been described as "funny, ironic and touching" by Gutter Girls and "A presence worth noting and, in such apathetic times, a force the music world clearly needs" by the
Big Issue in the North.
