Album Notes
Claudia Schwab is an originally Austrian fiddle player and composer, who lives and works in Ireland. As a musician of the world, in her music she amalgamates different traditions and styles such as traditional Austrian, Irish, Classical Indian, Swedish and Eastern European folk.

Her musical journeys brought her to Egypt, California, Italy, Slovenia, India, New York, Moldavia, Transnistria, Sweden, Germany and Hungary, as part of orchestras and bands as well as touring her solo project.
Since having completed her BA in music and psychology in 2012 and an MA in ethnomusicology at UCC in 2013, she works as a freelance musician.
Current projects include collaborations with Austrian string-trio Netnakisum (AUT), Irish Indie band Tucan and Their Brass String Ensemble (IRE), German Jazz legend Matthias Schriefl, the Cork Gamelan orchestra (IRE) and Kate Young (SCT/AUT: Kate and the Austrian).

Claudia's debut album ´Amber Sands´ is a compilation of music that unites the sounds of her native home-place of Austria with her adopted home of Ireland, as well as various other music traditions with which she feels at home. A unique and atmospheric blend of Irish, Indian, Swedish and Eastern European music styles overlaid with her native Austrian yodelling, Schwab´s music reflects her passion for people, place, and their associated music.

All music on the album is composed and arranged by Claudia Schwab, except for '3er Jodler' (Austrian trad.), 'Swedish Harmony' (Swedish trad.), 'Larry Redican's reel (Irish trad.) and the remix of Jodlfunk (by Jeff Weeter). Track 6 ('Sunday at Home') includes two manipulated samples by Vasen ('Nitti Pomfritti') and Broadlahn, with kind permission of Roger Tallroth and Ernst Huber.
