Claire Hastings is a true talent with an amazing and delicate voice. Without a doubt, she can offer something new and interesting among other young folk musisians. On that account it’s not surprising why her live performance at Barn Multi Art Center in Banchory gathered so many people. Great pleasure for me to be able to listen to her voice and take some photos.
