Described by RTÉ as an ‘Exceptional talent‘ and HOTPRESS as ‘A passionate and alluring force in Irish music‘, Clare Sands is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, performer, musician, and songwriter hailing from Cork, Ireland.

A sixth generation fiddler, Sands creates an eclectic & energetic sound rooted in Irish Traditional Music, meandering from fiddle to electric guitar to saxophone to harmonica, intertwined with sultry, gravely vocals.

‘An Irish fiddle playing reincarnation of Janis Joplin’, the remarkably versatile performer has been wowing audiences around the world with her groundbreaking style, exceptional performance, and infinite energy. Working as both a sought after session musician with the likes of The Hothouse Flowers, Mick Flannery, The Stunning, Jack L, Luka Bloom, Finbar Furey and many more, as well as selling out dates as a solo artist in her own right, this multitalented ‘force of natures’ time has come.
