Acclaimed bluegrass artist Claire Lynch in Glenwood
GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado ” Traditional bluegrass sounds will reverberate the historic halls of the Hotel Colorado tonight when the Claire Lynch Band plays the Roosevelt Room.
General admission tickets are $15 for adults in advance at Glenwood Music, Dos Gringos in Carbondale, online at http://www.bluegrasstickets.com, and at the hotel desk, or $20 at the door. Children under age 12 are free with a paid adult.
Seating is limited to 150. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the show starts at 8 p.m.
“This incredibly talented band will blow you away with vocal and instrumental talent,” said Dave Reynolds of Blue Heron Productions.
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, http://www.clairelynch.com.
Dolly Parton credits Claire with “one of the sweetest, purest and best lead voices in the music business today.”
Her harmonies have graced the recordings of renowned music artists such as Ralph Stanley and Linda Ronstadt, and her songs have been recorded by The Seldom Scene, Patty Loveless, Kathy Mattea, The Cherryholmes, The Whites and others.
