Now on Jonathan Richman’s label, Athens, GA’s favorite singer-songwriter has been pretty fruitful with two albums out this year on top of this tour. The live one, Skitter on Take Off, is mostly solo and pretty harrowing while the studio one, At the Cut, is spare and haunted. Rest assured, whichever persona he brings out will hold your attention and then some. Like Rufus Wainwright, Clare comes from a musical family (folkie/bluesman Geoff Muldaur is her dad) and, also like Rufus, she digs cabaret and baroque pop.
