(Claire Lynch Band - Live October 10 at St James
Long-recognized and praised as a creative force in acoustic music, Claire Lynch is a pioneer who continually pushes the boundaries of the bluegrass genre. Her career has been decorated with many accolades including three GRAMMY nominations, six International Bluegrass Music
Association awards and the prestigious United States Artists Walker Fellowship. Her harmonies have graced the recordings of many stellar musicians. Equally gifted as a writer, her songs have been recorded by The Seldom Scene, Patty Loveless, Kathy Mattea, Cherryholmes, The Whites and many more.
On her latest CD "North by South" (2016), Lynch has paid homage to her favourite Canadian songwriters on a set of bluegrass and new acoustic tracks. After her recent marriage to a Canadian (she becomes a permanent resident here this November), she began to dig into the vast catalog of songs written by Canadian songwriters and found the inspiration for this project. Working with Alison Brown in the producer's chair, she delivers standout versions of Ron Sexsmith's "Cold Hearted Wind" with Jerry Douglas
on Dobro, the catchy "Kingdom Come
" written by Old Man Luedecke featuring Béla Fleck (banjo) and Stuart
Duncan (fiddle) and the gorgeous maritime ballad "Molly May" written by Cape Breton's JP Cormier. Lynch also offers thoughtful reinterpretations of songs by Lynn Miles ("Black Flowers
Francey ("Empty Train") and Gordon
Lightfoot ("Worth Believing") and contributes the lighthearted, self-penned "Milo" to the project. To learn more, please visit: http://www.clairelynch.com/
