The Claire Lynch BandOnce you’ve heard Claire Lynch sing, you’ll recognize her voice in an instant. Her style blends classic bluegrass with a thoughtful mix of contemporary folk, country, rock, and swing. The International Bluegrass Music Association has named her Female Vocalist of the Year three times, including this past year, and she’s received two Grammy nominations, but what really tells the story is the music itself. “Her songs and stage presence demand the listener’s rapt attention,” says Bluegrass Now. “She’s an intensely soulful singer, whose distinctive voice resonates with power and strength, yet retains an engaging innocence and crystalline purity. She’s also a songwriter of extraordinary ability who can bring listeners to their feet with her buoyant rhythms or to their knees with her sometimes almost unbearably poignant and insightful lyrics.”

Claire grew up in Kingston, New York until the age of 12, when the family moved to Huntsville, Alabama, where she got caught up in the bluegrass revival of the 1970s and joined a band that eventually became the Front Porch String Band. She has written songs recorded by Patty Loveless, The Seldom Scene, and Kathy Mattea, and sung on albums by Emmylou Harris, Linda Rondstadt, and Ralph Stanley, as well as recording nine solo albums, including her latest, Dear Sister, which Kim Ruehl, in her about.com review, calls “one of the finest bluegrass discs I've heard in some time.” Claire’s band features young phenom Bryan McDowell on fiddle and mandolin, IBMA award-winner Mark Schatz on bass, and MerleFest Doc Watson Guitar Champion Matt Wingate on guitars. The Claire Lynch Band is unbelievably good – and if you haven’t seen them before, don’t miss this chance!
