Claire Hastings with Jenn Butterworth, 'live' at the Old King's Head Belper, 7th September 2019

We were delighted to  present Claire Hastings at The Old King's Head, Belper on Saturday September 7th, 2019.

Glasgow based folksinger, songwriter and ukulele player Claire Hastings has made a name for herself on the folk scene since winning BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year in 2015.

Since then she has toured throughout the UK, Europe and New Zealand as a solo artist, with The Claire Hastings Band and Top Floor Taivers, and shared the stage with the likes of Lulu, Jamie Cullum, Deacon Blue and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

Claire’s debut album ‘Between River and Railway’ was released in 2016 to critical acclaim. (Exquisite SONGLINES) Her much-awaited second album ‘Those Who Roam’, released at Celtic Connections 2019, features traditional and original songs under the theme of journeys.

Claire has a strong ability to portray a story through song, and is known for her varied repertoire and ‘natural, effortless Scots voice’ (FRUK)

She was joined by guitarist Jenn Butterworth, who made a welcome return to Belper, for a wonderful evening of songs and stories.


A unique and original talent MAVERICK

An evocative, timeless voice SONGLINES

A genuine treat FATEA

Claire does more than simply sing a song, she takes you to the story and sits you comfortably right beside the singer FOLK RADIO UK
