Kathryn Claire | Winter Songs

December 7 • 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm


With her violin and voice at the center of her music, Kathryn Claire weaves together stories and melodies rooted in her classical and traditional musical background while infusing each song and composition with an energy and electricity that is palpable. Her musicality and joy on stage is infectious. Honest and poetic writing, crystalline vocals, impassioned violin compositions, and an ability to move seamlessly across genres, are the hallmark of Kathryn Claire’s original and diverse sound.

Kathryn Claire was born and raised in Eugene, OR and is thrilled to return to Tsunami Books where she was the first musician ever to play the Tsunami stage back in 1998.  She will be joined by longtime friend and collaborator Don Henson on piano and percussion. Kathryn has created a show of winter songs.  This program is inspired by the season with music to honor the shortest days and longest nights.  Weaving together songs, instrumentals, traditional and original music and a few covers, Kathryn Claire invites the audience to join together in celebration of the season.

Kathryn Claire has spent years cultivating her own style and approach to music as a violinist, guitar player, singer, and songwriter. Strong fundamentals from her classical and traditional music background combined with improvisation has made her a favorite at venues, festivals and institutions around the world. A consummate collaborator, Kathryn Claire has shared the stage with many musicians, bringing her musicality and charismatic presence to each project she works with. She has toured and performed extensively in the US, Japan, The Netherlands, India, Belgium and France.

Don Henson is featured on Kathryn’s latest release, “Bones Will Last,  and has toured extensively with Kathryn Claire in the Pacific Northwest. Don works frequently with Will West and Skip Vonkuske in Portland, OR.   His band, ‘Sneakin Out’ has played various stages with Pink Martini, on The Tonight Show (With Jay Leno) and had the honor of playing Carnegie Hall.  Don is thrilled to be joining Kathryn Claire for this intimate evening of music.

Doors open at 7pm.  Show starts at 7:30pm.  Tickets are $12 and the show is ALL AGES.
