Dancing between intricate, rhythmic cello lines, compelling lyrics and heart-tugging harmonies, Monique Clare is an award-winning folk cellist and singer-songwriter. Anchored by a deep love of folk tradition, her songs push the possibilities of her instrument and roll in an eclectic set of influences. 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 has been touring internationally as part of The Maes through 2018. She’s joined by drummer Caleb Colledge this December at Flow Bar.
