claire_lynch_band-24_crop(2)(1)Are you ready for some bluegrass?? Reigning International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Female Vocalist of the Year Claire Lynch comes to Harrisburg for a pre-Super Bowl matinee concert sponsored by the Susquehanna Folk Music Society in association with the Seven Mountains Bluegrass Association. The concert will be at 2 p.m. on Sunday, February 2, 2014, at the Appalachian Brewing Company, 50 N. Cameron Street, Harrisburg.

Long recognized and praised as a creative force in acoustic music, Claire Lynch is a pioneer who continually pushes the boundaries of the bluegrass genre. She is a 2012 recipient of the United States Artists Walker Fellowship and has two Grammy nominations and IBMA vocalist awards in 1997 and 2010 to her credit.

Dolly Parton has said Lynch has “one of the sweetest, purest, and best lead voices in the music business today.” Equally gifted as a songwriter, Lynch’s songs have been recorded by The Seldom Scene, Patty Loveless, Kathy Mattea, Cherryholmes, The Whites, and others.

They’ll also be a football themed raffle with raffle prizes supplied by Mid-Penn Bank.

Concert tickets are $25 General Admission, $21 for SFMS members and members of the Seven Mountains Bluegrass Association, and $10 for students ages 3-22. Advance tickets are available through Brown Paper Tickets at (800) 838-3006 or online at http://www.BrownPaperTickets.com.
