This Friday, the Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series presents the Claire Lynch Band. The show is part of the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life. The show is free of charge, starts at 7 p.m. at Ashley Pond.
Claire Lynch is a singer/songwriter and was a rare woman’s voice in the bluegrass field when she first led the Front Porch String Band in the 1970s. The band was very successful, but stopped touring in 1981. Lynch became an in-demand session vocalist backing people like Dolly Parton on her albums and tours, as well as Linda Ronstadt, Pam Tillis, Patty Loveless, Kathy Mattea, Ralph Stanley and many others. “Claire has a hillbilly angel voice with a sweet high country twang. Her voice reminds me a lot of Dolly Parton and Allison Krauss,” Concert organizer Russ Gordon said.
Claire Lynch has been nominated for two Grammy Awards and has been won the International Bluegrass Music Association’s award for “Top Female Vocalist” twice. She has also won the IBMA for “Best Song.”
Dolly Parton said, “Claire has one of the sweetest, purest and best lead voices in the music business today.” Claire sang on both of Parton’s bluegrass albums, “The Grass Is Blue” and “Little Sparrow.”
