Glasgow-based folksinger, songwriter and ukulele player Claire Hastings has made a name for herself on the folk scene since winning BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year in 2015.
Since then she has toured extensively both as a solo artist and with her band, has shared stages with the likes of Lulu, Jamie Cullum and the Scottish Symphony Orchestra, appeared at internationally renowned folk festivals including Celtic Connections and Festival Interceltique de Lorient and performed at BBC Proms in the Park and on BBC’s Hogmanay 2021.
Claire has a strong ability to portray a story through song, and is known for her varied repertoire of traditional, contemporary and original songs as demonstrated in highly regarded albums ‘Between River and Railway’ (Exquisite Songlines) and ‘Those Who Roam’ (Highly engaging The Scotsman).
Claire also shares her passion for music and songwriting through various teaching projects and has recently worked with Fèis Rois, Survivor Arts, Live Music Now Scotland and Scottish Culture and Traditions amongst others.
Claire will be accompanied by Jenn Butterworth tonight who, as we all know at Edinburgh FC, is a mightily talented lass in her own right as she demonstrated earlier this year in October when she had her own headline gig at EFC and it sold out!
