Youth in a Roman Field

Youth in a Roman Field is the surrealist folk project of musician, writer, teacher, and activist Claire Wellin. The band’s progressive sound (described as a combination of ‘Appalachia, cayenne pepper, and ghosts’ and ‘like Radiohead but also folk music’) is reflected both in their inventive recordings and endearing live performances. Their unique ability to transform their training in traditional folk, jazz, and classical music has seen the band successfully grow a fan base from the ground up, forging deep bonds over the past ten years. Weaving string loops with soaring violin melodies and dynamic vocals, Claire’s solo show is part singer-songwriter, part one-woman-chamber orchestra, offering an intimate translation of the unique songs on the band’s records, including their most recent album, ‘Get Caught Trying,’ which was released November 2022 via Better Company Records and explores self-worth, power, loss of faith, care, and collective healing.
