Clara Baker & Jess McIntosh at Uncommon Ground

1401 W Devon Ave, Chicago, IL 60613-2812
Clara Baker's music is "medicine for the heart, mind and psyche," (No Depression)-- full of honest and thoughtful lyrics, soulful singing, impressive instrumentation, and an energetic groove. Clara’s clear, strong voice and heartfelt songwriting is often compared to that of young Joni Mitchell, though you can tell that she spent her formative years in the bluegrass world when you hear her driving rhythm guitar or her creative flatpicking leads. Fiddle-driven songwriter and composer Jess McIntosh released her debut album, Long Time Exhaling in early 2017. Ten years supporting other artists as a fiddler, singer, banjoist and guitarist inform her stage presence with easy wit and generous musical sensibility. Bandmates and multi-instrumentalists Aaron Smith and Bill Harris come steeped in avant-garde jazz, classical music, and traditional bluegrass. Together, the ensemble provokes an unrefined balance between familiarity and newness, held together by strong lyrics and melody under the umbrella of alt-country-folk.
