With 1.1 Master's degrees in both Music Performance and Arts Management, as well as a 1.1 Bachelor's degree in Music, Claire has been making waves in the Irish music scene for years. She has gained a reputation as one of Ireland's most sought-after soloists, performing at the world-famous Bunratty Castle banquets, along the Wild Atlantic Way, and as 'Ireland's Best Wedding Musician' for three consecutive years.
