Clare came to the old-time community somewhat by accident... and now can't imagine her life without it. Lucky break for the OT community, too. She brings quite a bit to the party. For instance, the richness of her playing skills is matched only by her perseverance in accurately documenting common and obscure fiddle tunes. Partnering up with Walt Koken along the way was also a fortuitous move. Yup, Clare seems to be doing just about everything right.
