A Direction Home :: 7:00am 30th Mar 2024

Folk / soul / blues singer-songwriter Claire Anne Taylor is heading to The National Folk Festival in Canberra this Easter as part of her 36-date tour across the country.  “Giving It All Away” was released in February through Cheatin’ Hearts Records.  She took time out to be with Cathy Kirkpatrick in the 2SER studios, performing three heart-wrenching songs and to chat about recording at MONA’s new Frying Pan Studios in Tasmania, being on the road with family and band, and her love of Otis Redding, Tracy Chapman and Van Morrison.

BEFORE is my theme this week, led by Claire’s stunning song.  Join us for the journey, as together we try to find A Direction Home.
