Lunchtime Concert – Clare Sands
March 14, 2019 at 1:15 pm - 2:00 pm
Described by RTÉ Lyric FM as an “exceptional talent”, and Hot Press as “passionate and alluring”, Clare Sands is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, and songwriter hailing from the vibrant musical city of Cork. Gracing a fender strat guitar in one hand and electric violin in the other, Sands, a Boss/Roland and Yamaha endorsed artist, has a unique ability to blend Jazz/Funk/Latin music with a Celtic twist, backed by an eclectic and energetic, top class band. Her ﬁrst record ‘Join Me At The Table’ in 2016 was met with critical acclaim, “really beautiful sounds” – RTÉ Radio 1. Sands toured it around Ireland, Europe and NYC, both as a solo artist and accomplished violinist with Jack L, Luka Bloom, Mundy, and other highly acclaimed artists, performing at Electric Picnic, the INEC and The National Concert Hall, to name a few. Having recently played her biggest show to date, Liverpool’s Feis, alongside Irish legends Imelda May and Shane McGowan to 15,000 people, Sands is in the midst of an Irish and German tour, with sold out dates in Clare, Cork, and Dublin. Her latest single ‘Dance x3!’ with legendary guitarist and producer, Jimmy Smyth (Van Morrison, Mary Coughlan, Chaka Khan) was met with critical acclaim; holding position at No 2 in the Irish Airplay Charts for over two months, it received excellent reviews by BBC, RTÉ, and the Irish Times – it’s “a celebration of groove and Motown songcraft” – Nialler 9.
