LONG BEACH, Wash. — Kathryn Claire, a longtime audience favorite, returns for her seventh appearance at the Peninsula Arts Center 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 6. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Claire exhibits a charisma and grace matched only by her unique voice and rare ability to move across genres. She has spent years cultivating her style and approach to music as a violinist, guitar player, singer and songwriter.
Strong fundamentals from her classical and traditional music background, combined with an ability to improvise, has made her a favorite at venues, festivals and institutions around the world. She has toured and performed extensively in the U.S., Japan, India, Holland, Belgium and France.
Claire also tours in the U.S. and Japan with Big Bridges, a project between Japanese rock guitarist Takashi O’hashi and musicians in Portland. Their new record, “Will To Ascend,” features music composed by O’hashi with lead vocals and lyrics written by Claire and Casey Neill.
Claire delivers exciting and inspiring performances. Her genuineness, musical versatility and infectious smile make her an unforgettable performer.
