Pushing the boundaries of bluegrass with The Claire Lynch Band
The Claire Lynch Band last played in Redding to a packed house at Bernie’s Guitar in 2011. Her return to Redding is long overdue! 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 style blends classic bluegrass with a thoughtful mix of contemporary folk, country, rock, and swing. The International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) has named her Female Vocalist of the Year three times (in 1997, 2010 and 2014), and in 2014, she won two more IBMA awards including Song of the Year for “Dear Sister”, the title cut of her most recent CD, and Recorded Event of the Year for her collaboration with Rob Ickes and Special Consensus on the song “Wild Montana Skies.”, which appeared on the album “Country Boy; A Bluegrass Tribute to John Denver”. She has also received two GRAMMY nominations, and was a 2012 recipient of the United States Artists Walker Fellowship. Dolly Parton credits Claire with "one of the sweetest, purest and best lead voices in the music business today." Claire's harmonies have graced the recordings of many stellar musicians, including Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Linda Rondstadt, and Ralph Stanley. Equally gifted as a songwriter, her songs have been recorded by The Seldom Scene, Patty Loveless, Kathy Mattea, Cherryholmes, The Whites and others.
