Long recognized as a creative force in acoustic music, Claire Lynch has had a career decorated with many accolades including three GRAMMY nominations, six International Bluegrass Music Association awards and the prestigious United States Artists Walker Fellowship, as well as membership in the Alabama Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame.
Dolly Parton credits Lynch with “one of the sweetest, purest and best lead voices in the music business today.” Her harmonies have graced the recordings of many stellar musicians, including Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Pam Tillis, Patty Loveless, Kathy Mattea and Ralph Stanley. Equally gifted as a writer, her songs have been recorded by Patty Loveless, Kathy Mattea, The Whites and many others.
Blazing her own trail in the mid 70′s when there were few role models for young women in the genre, Claire Lynch made history when she led the Front Porch String Band which evolved in the ‘80s and ‘90s into “one of the sharpest and most exciting post-modern bluegrass bands on the circuit.” She formed her own Claire Lynch Band in 2005 and has since consistently been a top pick of prestigious publications, critics and audiences across the U.S. and beyond.
DigitalJournal.com has listed Claire as “One of the 10 Best Angelic Voices of Our Time.” She has shared that honor with such luminaries as Judy Collins, Alison Krauss, Sarah McLachlan, Martina McBride, Dolly Parton and Emmylou Harris.
