Their last release, on Nashville’s Compass Records label titled ‘Wherever Yet May Be’, was shortlisted for the same award.
Claire has established herself as one of the World’s leading exponents of traditional Irish flute and fiddle. As well as numerous All-Ireland Championships on flute and tin whistle, Claire is highly sought after as a traditional music tutor and teaches at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow and at Newcastle University.
