The Lasses with Kathryn Claire

Irish voices from Amsterdam & Portland

 

A strong stage presence, spectacular harmonies and beautiful songs. This collaboration between
The Lasses (Amsterdam) and Kathryn Claire (Portland, Oregon) is guaranteed to mesmerize you.
With the vocals at center stage, this dynamic trio shares songs from the Celtic and American traditions
along with their own original music. Their three-part harmonies are complemented by skillful
arrangements on violin, bodhrán and guitar.

Three years ago, Kathryn Claire met Margot Merah and Sophie Janna (The Lasses) in an
Irish pub in Amsterdam. The three women connected instantly and decided to tour together.
At first they approached their shows as two separate acts, but in a short amount of time they found
themselves singing and playing on each other's songs with harmonies, percussion and violin.
As their music and collaboration evolved they found they had created a unique and strong sound as a trio.
Three years in, the women have toured all across Europe and the States and released a highly
praised album, recorded live at De Parel van Zuilen in The Netherlands:
"a treat for the audience" (Irish Music Magazine),
"a pearl in the crown of folk music" (OOR), "sublime" (fRoots).

***** Special Request *****
Many of our visiting performers are in need of a place to stay when they come to play.
Any House Concerteers with the wherewithall to take home a musician can count on,
not only free admission, but the scintillating company of a disciplined and conscientious
student of their chosen musical tradition. Let me know if this is a possibility.

A YEAR IN HOUSE CONCERTS

Imagining what a House Concert featuring one tune from each of our performers over the entire year might sound like, I've lined up one example of what each of our performers have provided us over the past year. To be sure, there have been a couple of evenings that missed being recorded and I hope your favorite was not among them. I also hope you can do without titles as announcements are not always intelligible on the recordings. Click on each of these links to access the audio files.
