Reigning International Bluegrass Music Association Female Vocalist of the Year, Claire Lynch is long recognized as a creative force in acoustic music. In addition to winning multiple IBMA awards, she has a couple Grammy nods, is an acclaimed songwriter (recorded by Patty Loveless, Seldom Scene and Kathy Mattea) and session vocalist (gracing albums by the likes of Emmylou, Dolly, Linda Ronstadt, Jesse Winchester and Ralph Stanley). Blazing her own trail in the mid 1970s when there were few role models for a young woman in the genre, Claire Lynch made history when leading the Front Porch String Band.
"Claire Lynch is a rare talent indeed. She has a beautiful, effervescent voice which can handle both contemporary and traditional musics with complete authenticity. I love to listen to her and I love to sing with her." - Linda Ronstadt
"Claire has complimented many of my records with her beautiful harmonies, but she has one of the sweetest, purest and best lead voices in the music business today. I'm so happy to see and hear her shine on her own…She's a great gal." - Dolly Parton
