Clare Wilkins

A few things to know about me.  I am a wife, mother and grandmother.  I love to laugh, love family and love music.
I am a retired teacher.  I started my journey into music from the age of eight when my school choir was entered into The Eisteddfod. I then was lead singer in a band at the age of 14 to about 17 years old. While teaching I joined a drama group which allowed my passion for singing and music.
