When the 'stacks' offer music mastery

by: SUBMITTED PHOTO - Hanz Araki (flute, whistles, bodhran, vocals) and Kathryn Claire (guitar, fiddle, vocals) play traditional and contemporary Celtic music plus the occasional Americana or folk song.Music in the Stacks returns to the Canby Public Library Saturday, March 8, at 2:30 p.m. with the appearance of the Kathryn Claire Duo.

Kathryn Claire has asserted herself in a new generation of traditionally-inspired musicians. Her violin-playing exhibits a technical grace which is matched by her truly captivating voice.

She will be joined by Hanz Araki (flute, whistles, bodhran and vocals) in playing traditional and contemporary Celtic music, plus the occasional Americana or folk song.

Claire’s deep love and respect for traditional music has long been a driving influence and those roots can be heard in her own original music.

Her early classical training was on the violin before giving way to her own creative inclinations. While still a teenager, she taught herself guitar in order to explore her own voice as a songwriter. She has since spent years cultivating her unique style and approach to music as a guitar player, violinist, singer, and songwriter.
