Three Time IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year
and 2014 Song of the Year winner, coming to the deCoste Centre
PICTOU-- Multi-award-winning American bluegrass pioneer Claire Lynch will be on stage at the deCoste Performing Arts Centre on Tuesday, October 10
at 7:30 p.m.
With two Grammy nominations, three International Bluegrass Music Association Female Vocalist Awards and two International Bluegrass Music Association Awards, Lynch is well recognized in the bluegrass scene.
While Emmylou Harris hails Lynch as having the “voice of an angel,” Dolly Parton, to whom Lynch has lent harmonies on several records, believes it’s her solo material that truly stands out-- “She has one of the sweetest, purest and best lead voices in the music business today. I’m so happy to see her shine on her own.”
Named by DigitalJournal.com as one of the “10 best angelic voices of our time” alongside icons like Judy Collins, Sarah McLachlin and Alison Krauss, Lynch is a legend in her own right. Her live performances conjure a beautiful authenticity. She’s both timeless and original. Her latest albums Dear Sister and Holiday! are musical offerings of love, celebration and heartfelt connection.
She will be backed by the members of her white-hot Claire Lynch Band, which features Bryan McDowell (fiddle-mandolin), virtuoso Jarrod Walker (mandolin-guitar) and Mark Schatz (bass-banjo). Tickets are available through the deCoste Centre box office at 902-485-8848 or 1-800-353-5338
