The Claire Lynch Band


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 career has been decorated with many accolades including three GRAMMY nominations, six International Bluegrass Music Association awards and the prestigious United States Artists Walker Fellowship. Dolly Parton credits Claire with “one of the sweetest, purest and best lead voices in the music business today.” Equally gifted as a writer, her songs have been recorded by The Seldom Scene, Patty Loveless, Kathy Mattea, Cherryholmes, and others. Claire will be joined onstage by bassist Mark Schatz, a two time IBMA Bass Player of the Year and by multi-instrumentalist Bryan McDowell.
