Music

Restrung 2017: Monique Clare

Presented by Restrung Productions

Cello-wielding songstress, Monique Clare hails from the foothills of Mount Coot-tha and delivers raw, eclectic folk fusion.

Gripping vocal lines are woven between earthy cello tones, born out of old traditions but injected with fresh, unconventional ideas. Through performing at festivals across Australia she has developed a reputation as one of the nation’s most exciting emerging folk cellists, winning awards as part of traditional folk duo, Rhiannon & Monique.

In 2016 she was awarded grants to travel around the USA for mentoring in folk and contemporary cello, by the Australia Council and Queensland Government. This year sees her embarking on a solo project, after years of playing in various folk bands including The Mulberry Collective and Rhiannon & Monique.
