Posted: Updated:

No matter what genre of music, every once in a while, there is one of those voices that makes you just top what you are doing and listen. Bluegrass star Claire Lynch has one of those voices.

Fun Facts About Claire Lynch: (Source: Clairelynch.com)

1) 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.

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

3) 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 80's and 90's into "one of the sharpest and most exciting post-modern bluegrass bands on the circuit."  She formed her own Claire Lynch Band in 2005 and has since consistently been a top pick of prestigious publications, critics and audiences across the U.S. and beyond.

The Claire Lynch Band will be in concert tonight at the Mission Theater in Northridge.
