Canadian Songwriters Inspire Claire Lynch's New Album

North By SouthNashville, TN -- Three-time IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year winner and 2016 nominee, Claire Lynch pays homage to Canadian songwriters through a set of bluegrass and Americana tracks on her new album North By South. Inspired by her recent marriage to a Canadian, Lynch began to dig into the vast catalog of songs written by Canadian songwriters. Working with Alison Brown in the producer’s chair, she delivers stand out versions of Ron Sexsmith’s “Cold Hearted Wind” with Jerry Douglas on Dobro, the catchy “Kingdom Come” written by Old Man Luedecke featuring Bela Fleck (banjo) and Stuart Duncan (fiddle) and the gorgeous maritime ballad “Molly May” written by Cape Breton’s J.P. Cormier. Lynch also offers thoughtful reinterpretations of songs by Lynn Miles (“Black Flowers”), Dave Francey (“Empty Train”) and Gordon Lightfoot (“It's Worth Believing”).

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
