Since then she has toured throughout the UK, Europe and New Zealand as a solo artist, with The Claire Hastings Band and Top Floor Taivers, and has shared the stage with the likes of Lulu, Jamie Cullum, Deacon Blue and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.
Claires debut album Between River and Railway (2016) to critical acclaim - "Exquisite" (Songlines).
Her much-awaited second album Those Who Roam was launched at Celtic Connections in 2019, features traditional and original songs under the theme of journeys.

She will be accompanied at EFC by Jenn Butterworth on guitar (Kinnaris Quintet, Jenn & LB).
"A unique and original talent" (Maverick)
