Claire Watts, a keen Irish traditional flute and tin-whistle player, will be launching her new album at the Bath Folk Festival this year!
“Claire Watts is a lovely singer with a clear, honest and beautiful voice. You'd have to have a heart of stone not to be moved by these songs.” - John Spillane
Playing in various folk sessions and with different bands in Somerset; Claire has been around the area since the late ‘80s, busking the night shift on the streets of Bath. She completed a Masters in Irish Traditional Music Performance at Limerick University; though her music is tightly connected to her Irish identity she came back to the Bath area to pursue her career.
Ali George started his musical career early: he got his first guitar when he was six years old and was in his first band by the age of ten.
A couple years and albums later, in 2016 Ali released “Fallen Jewel”, his most polished record to date. Featuring the unforgettable Ruby Brown on vocals, the renowned Beth Porter on Cello, and the formidable Pete O'Neill on Bass.
His latest album “The Old Innocence” was written over a period of 15 years, the oldest song backdating to when Ali was 18 years old.
