Review for 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 two 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 two-three 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.
And The Claire Lynch Band is a tight meld of some of the best in the business – Mark Schatz, Jason Thomas, and Matt Wingate award-winning bluegrass and acoustic stars in their own right.
Currently Whatcha Gonna Do is No. 4 on the National Bluegrass Survey, the national charts of Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine, and song -“My Florida Sunshine” is in the top of the charts for Bluegrass Music Profiles.
