Honfest Spotlight: Claire Anthony

May 31st, 2014 by The Professor

Claire Anthony Claire Anthony once graced a WLOY show with the greatest stick-figure rendering of the creative process you could possibly imagine. Seriously. As a bonus she’s a very talented singer songwriter. With her strong vocals, guitar playing, and her personality being sweeter than honey, she’s a versatile musician. Claire’s folkie sound can be reminiscent of warm Summer skies, the dancing of the leaves on those windy Fall days, the crackling of a warm fireplace during those cold Winter nights, and the sweet sound of birds chirping on a nice Spring day. Claire has performed for many of our events in the past and we are happy to have her come perform at the WLOY stage for Honfest 2014. She will be performing on Sunday June 15th. Visit her website: http://www.claireanthonymusic.com/ to listen and learn more about her music
