    Americana, roots music, rough-around-the-edges folk. Canadian singer-songwriter Lynne Hanson prefers “porch music with a little red dirt.” Hanson songs are like a favorite pair of jeans. They’re rough around the edges, faded and worn through in spots, with a bit of honestly-acquired dirt ground into the seams. And they’re expressed in a rich voice coupled with accomplished guitar playing that demands repeated listening. Hanson grew up in Ottawa Canada, and starting playing guitar when she was 14, learning on a hand-me-down from an older brother. She released her award-winning debut album – Things I Miss – in 2006, and with tales to tell, two more albums quickly followed – Eleven Months (2008) and Once the Sun Goes Down (2010). Each new release garnered critical praise, earning Hanson a Canadian Folk Music Award nomination in 2009, an invitation to the Kerrville Folk Festival as a New Folk Finalist, and a year later the prestigious Colleen Peterson Songwriting Award handed out annually by the Ontario Arts Council. Originally from Dorset but now residing in a small barn perched on a hill in Oxfordshire, Thame-based couple Kerraleigh and Martin Childaugust list-new-1 comprise The August List; a boy/girl two-piece who play ‘backwards country/porch folk’ with a startling rock ‘n’ roll attitude. Acoustic guitars, kick drums, harmonicas and their voices are deployed with verve and passion on songs that take in life, love, death and making merry. Their debut EP, augustlist2‘Handsome Skin’, was released in November 2012 on Ubiquity Project Records. Words used by people to describe this recording include: ‘haunting’, ‘full of grit and soul, fire and fog’, ‘beautiful’ and ‘creepy’. The August List hope it is all these things. Their second EP ‘High Town Crow’ was released on UPR Records in October 2013. The Willard Grant Conspiracy gave them the nod to name themselves after one of their songs.
