Behind the Music

“To Keep the Candle Burning is dedicated to the many traditional Irish musicians who inspired me throughout my childhood. While the album includes some original tunes, it is primarily comprised of tunes I learned either directly from these musicians or from their recordings. The abundance of dedicatees demonstrates how the interwoven contributions of each musician keep the tradition alive. These musicians paved a path for the next generation to embrace creativity within the framework of a living tradition. My goal is to be a part of the movement that keeps the tradition alive and keeps the candle burning for generations to come."

~ Joanna Clare 2022

An original tune called "Morning Joe" featuring Kevin Elam
