The Garden Theatre is pleased to present The Claire Lynch Band on Friday, April 9 at 8pm at the Garden Theatre (160 West Plant Street). Due to the popular demand of her Garden Theatre appearance last season, the band returns for a one-night-only concert and features Winter Garden's own Jason Thomas on fiddle.
ABOUT CLAIRE LYNCH
Making records since she was 19, Claire Lynch has long been recognized as a creative force in bluegrass music and at the forefront of women who have expanded the genre. She has received 2 Grammy nominations, countless specialized awards and other nominations - along with reverent standing ovations for her shows at prestigious music festivals and theaters for the past 2-3 decades. Her latest album Whatcha Gonna Do was released in September on Rounder Records. A new Claire Lynch album does more than herald the arrival of a new collection of stellar vocals and tight, tasteful arrangements - each album also showcases Lynch's remarkable taste in songs.
Over the past two decades, Lynch has crafted one of the most instantly-identifiable sounds in acoustic music. Delicate and lilting, yet uplifting and rhythmically spry, Lynch's style encompasses classic bluegrass and thoughtful infusions of contemporary folk, country, rock, and swing. As a songwriter, Lynch's songs have been recorded by Kathy Mattea, Patty Loveless, and others, and she has performed as a backing/harmony vocalist with Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Patty Loveless, Pam Tillis, just to name a few. www.myspace.com/clairelynch
