It’s not just folk..!
… What Clear Waters play has elements of folk in, that’s because Chris grew up with Irish music and Julia has always sung ballads and folk songs. But it is more than ‘just folk’ because of other influences; Chris has previously been involved with Punk, Folk-Rock or Theatre and Julias voice is as wide ranging as her interest in different types of music. A typical Clear Waters song may have an Irish theme but be written in Spain, it could sound Russian or even have South American rhythms. The music is always treated with respect and performed with a lot of passion as anyone who has seen Clear Waters live will have experienced. Chris and Julia have been playing this music with energy and feeling since they met in May ‘93. It was a chance meeting under an apple tree that started Clear Waters flowing and they have gone from strength to strength since then. This is Clear Waters first CD, an adventurous musical journey throughSongs, Tunes and Ballads from Past to Present.
