About Claire Lynch:
Making records since she was 19, Claire Lynch has long been recognized as a creative force in acoustic music and at the forefront of women who have expanded the genre. She’s been named bluegrass “Female Vocalist of the Year” twice, most recently in 2010, and was nominated again in 2011. She’s received two Grammy nominations, countless specialized awards and other honors – along with reverent standing ovations for her shows at prestigious music festivals and theaters around the world for over two decades. 

Lynch has crafted one of the most instantly identifiable sounds in acoustic music.  Her 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, and Pam Tillis — just to name a few.  And The Claire Lynch Band is a tight meld of some of the best in the business – Mark Schatz, Matt Wingate, and Bryan McDowell, the most recent member of the band, are award-winning bluegrass and acoustic stars in their own right. In fact, The Bluegrass Blog recently said, “Lynch just might have the best backing lineup of her career.”
