Lynch has received two International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Female Vocalist of the year awards and two Grammy nominations for Best Bluegrass Album.

Her band includes Jim Hurst, also a recipient of two IBMA Guitar Player of the Year awards; Mark Schatz, two-time IBMA Bass Player of the Year awards; and mandolinist/fiddler Jason Thomas, who was a member of Kanes River when they appeared in Glenwood Springs in March of 2005.

Lynch got her start with the Front Porch String Band, honing a “seasoned sound that is simultaneously unpretentious and richly textured,” according to her website,
