Award Winning Bluegrass Artist Claire Lynch is Day 4 BRRR Band

Claire Lynch BandClaire Lynch is a two-time winner of the IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year and Grammy nominee. In the world of Bluegrass, she has long been recognized as a creative force in acoustic music and at the forefront of women who have expanded the genre. Most recently, Lynch was awarded one of the 50 USA Fellowships from United States Artists (USA). With only seven awards going to musicians this year, the 2012 USA Fellows represent the most innovative and influential artists in their fields – including cutting-edge thinkers and traditional practitioners from the fields of architecture and design, crafts and traditional arts, dance, literature, media, music, theatre arts, and visual arts.

For more than two decades Lynch has crafted one of the most identifiable sounds in acoustic music, encompassing classic bluegrass and thoughtful infusions of temporary folk, country, rock, and swing. As a songwriter of inventive and evocative Music Row hits, her songs have been recorded by Kathy Mattea, Patty Loveless, and others, and she has performed as a backing/harmony vocalist with Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, and Pam Tillis–just to name a few.

By any measure, the Claire Lynch Band is high on the bluegrass world’s A-List–and on ours. We are proud to welcome Lynch and her band back to The Reunion in 2013.

Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion isn’t just a music festival. It’s an infectious, three-day music experience, bursting with creative passion, electricity, and soul. Every third weekend in September, State Street in historic Downtown Bristol, TN/VA is amped to the beat of Appalachia’s past, present, and future. It digs down deep into the roots of traditional Appalachian sound and lifts its branches to new heights–and it all happens in the heart of The Birthplace of Country Music. It is, and isn’t, your Daddy’s country music. It’s hardly strictly bluegrass. It’s not a rock show, but it totally does. And if you’ve never been, you’ll never know how much.

Nashville may be country music’s capitol, but Bristol is the birthplace. It was on State Street in 1927 that talent scout Ralph Peer made the very first country music recordings with The Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers, Ernest Stoneman, and others, for the Victor Talking Machine Company. The recordings known as The Bristol Sessions are recognized internationally as the “Big Bang” of country music.

The first festival took place in October of 2001 with just a couple thousand people in attendance. By its 10th anniversary in 2010, 45,000 people from 8 foreign countries and 34 states descended upon Downtown Bristol to celebrate the music.
