Event Main Image
From Cathy DeWitt:

Claire has been a positive and beloved force in bluegrass and country music since her days with the Front Porch String Band in the 80's. After a long hiatus while raising her family, she came back to music via a different route. Twice voted vocalist of the year by the IBMA,  Claire also sang harmony on “The Grass is Blue” and “Little Sparrow” which led to promotional touring as backup vocalist for Dolly Parton (Dolly has described Claire as "one of the sweetest, purest and best lead voices in the music business today.")  She graced albums by other artists with her background vocals including Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Pam Tillis, Alison Brown, Patty Loveless, Kathy Mattea and Ralph Stanley.  Today, the impressive list of other guest appearances continues including spots on albums by Donna the Buffalo, Sara Watkins, the Gibson Brothers, Jonathan Edwards and Jesse Winchester. In 2005, Lynchstruck out on her own, forming the Claire Lynch Band and releasing the aptly named “New Day” CD. It was a hit on the bluegrass charts and earned her IBMA nominations for “Song of the Year” and “Female Vocalist of the Year.”  In 2007, Rounder Records featured her brilliant catalog of music from her previous five albums on their label and titled the anthology collection, “Crowd Favorites”. More IBMA nominations followed as well as an induction into the Alabama Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame.

Claire's band includes Matt Wingate, Bryan McDowell and Mark Schatz. You won't want to miss the onstage clogging!
Make your reservation now and come enjoy this wonderful music in the comfy chairs of this intimate and acoustically sound listening environment.  Call 373-1030 or email cathydew@gmail.com for reservations.
