Sixth-generation fearless fiddler, bilingual singer, and multi-instrumentalist Clare Sands embarked on an exploration of the nooks and crannies of Ireland’s sights and sounds throughout 2021, creating four boundary breaking macaronic songs.
Spanning over four seasons in the four provinces of Ireland, alongside four different collaborators, Tírdreacha Agus Fuaimdreacha (Landscapes & Soundscapes) is a musical journey featuring renowned folk and traditional musicians, Susan O’Neill, Steve Cooney with Tommy Sands, Brídín and Liam Ó Maonlaí.
Taking inspiration from the landscapes and soundscapes of Ireland, Sands and her collaborators followed their roots and their sprawl, navigating through uncharted territories where Irish and English languages, traditional, folk and contemporary music meet.
