Haunting and Healing Sounds with Cinder Well

The result is a rich tapestry of folk with an ethereal air. Baker’s work is one of stillness, a quiet musing on the landscape of our time, leading to a sense of healing and sanctuary.

Inspired by her years in Clare, Cinder Well’s acclaimed album No Summer is testament to the breadth of her experience in Ireland and its sheer influence on her. Acknowledged by The Guardian as one of the ten best folk albums of 2020, there is a ritual rite of passage to her music.

Baker reworks tradition with ancestral passion. Her sound is restorative, calling not only upon the history of Irish folk, but also on Appalachian sources. Together, a live performance with Cinder Well provides a welcome space for reflection and song.

Having performed as part of folk-punk band Blackbird Raum, the opportunity to join the contemporary Irish folk band Lankum on their circuit changed the direction of her musical journey. The arrow pointed clearly towards Ireland and the appeal of Clare.

As a result, her gig at Monroe’s Live on Thursday, December 1 at 8pm is a homecoming of sorts for the Californian. She will be accompanied by Cormac MacDiarmada from Lankum and Jim Ghedi, completing the circle.
