Monique Clare

    Dancing between intricate, rhythmic cello lines, compelling lyrics and heart-tugging harmonies, Monique Clare is an award-winning powerhouse in the contemporary folk scene. She draws on tradition while boldly marching towards the forefront of innovation. Onstage she’s described as “pure joy” to watch; offstage she’s hosted mountaintop sunrise concerts, taught cello in Afghanistan and travelled the world to dive deeply into folklore treasure troves. As the 2017 Folk Alliance Australia Young Artist of the Year she broke out as a solo artist, released and toured her debut EP, and is touring internationally as part of The Maes through 2018.
