Fri, August 2nd @ 8pm
Unison Arts Center
New Paltz, NY

Claire Lynch returns to the Hudson Valley this summer with friend and collaborator Jim Hurst! This power duo will be playing at 8pm at the Unison Arts Center in New Paltz.

Recognized as a creative force in acoustic music, Claire Lynch is a pioneer who continually pushes the boundaries of the bluegrass genre. Claire Lynch possesses a wholesome and beautiful bluegrass sound that has made her one of the most sought after bluegrass performers today. Her career is adorned with accolades including three GRAMMY nominations, seven International Bluegrass Music Association awards, and the prestigious United States Artists Walker Fellowship. Dolly Parton credits Claire with "one of the sweetest, purest and best lead voices in the music business today."

Joining Ms. Lynch is bluegrass guitarist and singer Jim Hurst. Hurst's unique picking style and mastery of bluegrass guitar are revered by his collaborators and peers and cement him as one of the best pickers in the business. His eclectic career has made him a remarkable performer, an experienced instructor and a highly sought after session musician.

Be sure to catch this duo next Friday!
