Chanteuse traditionnelle de Bretagne | Traditional singer from Brittany

Originaire de Sarzeau en Bretagne, Claire s’est d’abord intéressée à la danse bretonne en faisant partie de cercles celtiques de la Presqu’île de Rhuys. Par la suite, son intérêt pour la chanson traditionnelle l’a amenée à suivre divers ateliers de chants traditionnels en Bretagne, notamment avec Jorg Belz, Laurent Jouin et Charles Quimbert. En solo, Claire a participé à plusieurs festivals de musique folk et traditionnelle au Québec et aux États-Unis.
