Combining strength and purity of voice, enchanting and subtle song writing, and superb musicianship, the Claire Lynch Band takes bluegrass to new heights. The band is known for its intense sound, as well as for brilliant picking, of course. Claire Lynch was winner of the International Bluegrass Association’s award for Female Vocalist of the Year 3 years in a row!
“Listening to Claire Lynch sing is not something to be undertaken casually. Her songs and stage presence demand the listener’s rapt attention. 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.” Dave Higgs, WPLN Nashville; WAMU Washington DC.
“Lynch’s voice has the sweet high country twang of a teen singing on the porch, but also a deeper womanly tone to tell her stories and tug the heart. Aside from Lynch’s singing, one is struck by the almost symphonic quality to the down-home instrumentation of the arrangements…not just brilliant picking, but sophisticated, seemingly spontaneous composition.” Michael Devlin, Music Matters Magazine
