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. She is the reigning Female Vocalist of the Year for the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) and a 2012 recipient of the United States Artists Walker Fellowship. Her career has been decorated with many other accolades including two GRAMMY nominations and IBMA Vocalist awards in 2010 and 1997. Claire’s harmonies have graced the recordings of many stellar musicians. Equally gifted as a songwriter, her songs have been recorded by The Seldom Scene, Patty Loveless, Kathy Mattea, Cherryholmes, The Whites and others.

 

Dolly Parton credits Claire with “one of the sweetest, purest and best lead voices in the music business today.”

 

Blazing her own trail in the mid 70′s when there were few role models for a young woman 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.”

 

Returning from an extended hiatus, in 2005 she formed her own Claire Lynch Band and has since consistently been a top pick of prestigious publications, critics and audiences across the U.S. and beyond. The band features like-minded musicians blending tradition and innovation: two-time IBMA-winning bassist-clawhammer banjo player-dancer-percussionist Mark Schatz; soulful mandolinist-guitarist Matt Wingate; and young string wizard Bryan McDowell, who at 18, won an unprecedented triple win at the Winfield, Kansas National Flatpicking Championship.
