Clare Byrne - Music & Dance

IN MY BODY a lifelong dancer, choreographer, and performance experimenter. A close partner with sound, silence, and word.  IN MY MIND a writer, a songwriter. All my effort and ear is bent, twanged toward overlapping arcs of listening and creating. The songs: others, mine, mine, others. I’m taught by them.  IN MY HANDS instruments, crafts to navigate, maps to decipher, landscapes and laboratories of unending allure and resonance. New loves, old loves. I’ve been dancing to them since day one. Now a brave, bewildered musician. I’m going deeper in.

  • Phantom Theater song & dance

    Music and dance – on the same program – at the beautiful Phantom Theater in Warren, VT.

    Next Tuesday-Wednesday July 24-25, I’ll be the outside music-and-dance entertainment act, both pre- and post show. The mighty musical talents of Ted Looby and Gus Ziesing will join me.

    Get to the Barn by 7:30pm! Bring blanket, chairs, snacks, picnic if you like.

    We’ll be on then, warming things up for excellent Vermont/Brooklyn choreographers Hanna Satterlee and Meghan Frederick, who start indoors at 8:00pm.

    And after the show – we’ll cool things down, send you dreaming off into the balmy Warren night that cloaks as it reveals, that holds as it pours –

    I’ve been so looking forward to this chance to do my music-with-dance show at Phantom, with Ted and Gus too – hope you can come see what we’ve been up to.

  • strawberry time

    End of strawberry season…and good thing too! The music engagements are beginning to pile up thick on the horizon – July and August will be full of them, at home and abroad. Starting the month off with my monthly Acoustic brunch at Radio Bean. This Sunday July 9th 11:00AM – 12:30PM. I will be acoustic this month! But the fantastic Ted Looby will be joining me and electrifying things a bit.


  • Tweet!

    This weekend – artists work out their stuff over the current regime. White Witch is making an appearance.


  • album release weekend!

    The Seed album release party events this Memorial weekend were so full, crazy and beautiful. Great to get the music out there, get it listened to – both on CD and live. At this point, Seed feels like it was recorded a long time ago, but it was a real pleasure to appreciate how it’s still relevant now in my creative process, and of course to play the music live with Ted Looby, Gus Ziesing, Remy De Laroque and Dan Strauss. We missed Bridget Wheeler and Chris Schroth, both off in the world doing great things!

    Great to get some mention and feedback review in Seven Days  too.

    One of the biggest perks/pleasures was to play a couple radio shows in the weeks before – Exposure on WRUV 90.1FM at UVM, and The Rocket Shop on The Radiator 105.9FM – with Ted and Gus. I’d never done a radio show before! a whole different set of performance skills.  Then the rest of the gang assembled from Brooklyn to share shows at the Light Club Lamp Shop on Saturday and Bagitos in Montpelier on Sunday. Watching sunset over Lake Champlain all together with take-out from Tiny Thai at Oakledge Park really rounded out the weekend just right. Wow, fun to be, like, a real band for a moment!


  • Seed CD’s arrived

    Hot off the press – the CD’s for “Seed” are here!

    The CD Release party for  is coming up this week at the Light Club Lamp Shop – this Saturday May 27th at 8:00PM. So happy to share the show with Ink the Octopus –  indie folk duo otherwise known as Remy De Laroque and Dan Strauss.  As lead up this week I’ll be doing my second radio spot –  at the Rocket Shop on the Radiator 105.9FM on Wednesday May 24th at 8:00PM. Last week’s at UVM’s WRUV was a blast – so much fun to play with Ted Looby and Gus Ziesing, all the “Seed” songs plus six or seven new ones.
