    MONIQUE CLARE (8.30PM)

    Wielding a cello and strikingly crafted vocals, multi award-winning songwriter Monique Clare delivers cathartic and impactful indie folk. From teaching cello in Afghanistan to performing at Celtic Connections in Scotland and Seto Folk in Estonia, Monique’s intrepid nature has seen her bring music to far flung corners of the world, into war zones and up mountain-tops for sunrise concerts. Her candid stage presence is born from years touring with The Maes and playing cello for everyone from Kate Miller-Heidke to Eminem.
