November 2012 sees some exciting developments on the visual side of Clara Rose! She successfully launched a beautiful new look website (which you are NOW perusing) designed by the wonderful Frank Halligan AND her very first music video directed and shot by award winning Mark Watson on location in Co. Monaghan. The new visuals were launched with a rocking gig in Master Deerys, Monaghan town as part of their 10 year anniversary celebrations. Special guest on the night with The Clara Rose Band was Irish Blues Harmonica Legend: Don Baker. This appearance was ahead of his upcoming album launch for, “My Songs, My Friends” on which Clara Rose is a featured artist – alongside the cream of Irish Musicians such as: Sinead O’Connor, Damien Dempsey, Finbar Furey, Eleanor McEvoy, Liam O’Maonlai, Mick Pyro… to name a few…
The music video is set to a track off her debut album, “Broken Woman Blues” and features 2 bungling detectives caught in a time warp chasing the trail of a blues musician around Co. Monaghan in the 1950s… some beautiful vintage cars courtesy of Moses & Scanbitz, and the impeccable Monaghan countryside… but who is the murder victim….? You have to watch it to find out!
