Live, LIVE, Love (Pronounced: Live-Lyve-Love) is the new live album from Clara Rose and her band plus special guests.
The album was recorded over two shows in Arthur’s Blues and Jazz Club (Dublin) and The Garage Theatre (Monaghan) in the spring of 2020. With the help of funding from the Music Industry Stimulus Package from First Music Contact Clara brought the raw sound files to Les Keye in Arad Studios (Dublin) and they embarked on a magical mystery tour of music, mixing and mastering to produce this album.
2020 see’s Clara Rose embarking on a live album recording project with her band, The Clara Rose Band. The recording will take place over series of shows in different types of venues to capture different vibes, sounds and music…
The first of these is the gorgeous Arthur’s Jazz & Blues Club on Thomas St., Dublin 1. This is on Friday 24th January. Tickets are €10 and can be bought on the door. If people come along they will be part of the live recording and experience the live album set played by:
Clara Rose – vocals, guitar
Elizabeth Monahan – vocals
Darragh Slacke – Electric guitar
Tony McManus – Bass
Gavin Taylor – Drums
The second of these shows is in The Garage Theatre, Monaghan on the 7th March. This is a special kind of night which deserves a post of it’s own! Scroll through the ‘news’ on this website to find out more. If you wish to buy tickets click here.
Notes:Clara Rose curates an evening of music to celebrate International Women’s Day 2020. Homegrown local artists Annie June Callaghan and Bronagh McCabe will join forces with Clara Rose for an evening of their songs and stories. Each artist brings their unique gifts to the show, resulting in a combination of stunning vocals, rock, soulful blues, power punk, dark roots and contemporary folk. This promises to be a night to remember, celebrating Women in Music in Monaghan.
This August has been a whirlwind for me as a wee blues woman. I have been working with Don Baker (www.donbaker.ie) for 2 years now – playing shows and recording vocals for his new album “My Songs, My Friends” due for release on 20th September. Last Wednesday I went down to David Cantwells’ photography studio (www.davidcantwellphotography.com) for a photoshoot – promo shots for Don’s album. What a fun evening! Involved in the shoot were Brian Kennedy, Paddy Casey & Mik Pyro aswell as Don and myself. With my hair done and glad rags on I had a great evening of hair flicking, pouting and laughs! The results can be seen here: www.donbaker.ie AND www.facebook.com/donbakerband
This weekend (23rd – 25th August) sees me making my London Debut. I have 2 gigs…

There are no words to describe my excitement! I can’t wait to meet new people, hear new great music and get a real feel for the ‘London scene’. The kitchen table in my wee cottage is covered in set lists, guitar strings, airline ticket print offs and “to do lists”… you could cut the anticipation with a kitchen knife.
Tonight I will also be making my English Radio Debut as I will be played on FromFM (www.frome.fm/programmes/music/blues-train/) by Dave Watkins on his acclaimed blues show “The Blues Train” from 8-9pm. Listen in on this link: www.frome.fm
So lets journey on another while and keep truckin’… maybe we will find some answers further on down the trail…
