Sands excavates into Ireland's ancient myths & landscapes whilst exploring the political exigencies of it's here and now… A bold, beautiful album brimming with ideas. - Songlines Magazine

Channeling the music of her ancestors, Clare Sands is a unique force in Irish music. Weaving traditional roots with Contemporary sounds and influences, Sands sings for the young and the old, the brave and the bold.

A 6th generation fiddler & bilingual singer, Sands has been wowing audiences around the world with her groundbreaking fearless folk style and infinite warrior-like energy. Recent electrifying live performances include Cambridge Folk Festival, Belfast TradFest and Festival Internacional Cervantino in Guanajuato, Mexico.

2022 saw the release of Clare's highly anticipated self-titled album. Earning her a 'Best Folk Singer' nomination for the Irish Folk Awards, The Irish Times Top 5 Folk albums of 2022, and highly acclaimed praise from the BBC, Songlines Magazine & Folker (DL). Following stand out performances last year at Glastonbury Festival, Celtic Connections & the Irish Arts Centre NYC last year, Clare will carry her song to Australia and Aotearoa for the first time this summer.

‘Sands reach is wide & deep. This album speaks most of all of resilience & solidarity, of friendship & kinship. This fine debut revels in Sands innate & fearless curiosity, and her insistence on diving deep below the surface. A mighty first step to what promises to be a lifelong expedition.’
- Siobhán Long, The Irish Times

‘Armed with the combined powers of virtuosity, boldness, and a touch of madcap spontaneity, Clare Sands has continued to mark herself as one of Irish music’s most compellingly unique forces.’
- Lucy O’Toole, Hotpress Magazine

'Her songs and music reflect and renew the past and present, both in English and Irish. Her own voice, sensibilities and cares make her music so powerful - the personal becoming the universal.'
- The Irish News
