CFMA-winning duo The LYNNeS (Lynn Miles & Lynne Hanson) bring their folk & Americana music to Golden Link

Rochester, NY –Juno Award-winning songwriter Lynn Miles and award-winning songwriter Lynne Hanson have teamed up to form the duo The LYNNeS. These two Canadian multi-instrumentalists fuse tight vocal harmonies with hauntingly gritty lyrics. Also known for their humor, the two witty songwriters play off each other live and have been known to leave the audience in stitches with their between-song banter. Winners of the 2018 Canadian Folk Music Award for English Songwriter of the Year and Ensemble of the Year, The LYNNeS bring their mix of folk and Americana music to Rochester for a Golden Link concert on Saturday, June 8, 2019, at 7:30 pm at the Rochester Christian Reformed Church, 2750 Atlantic Avenue, Penfield. 

Lynn Miles is one of Canada’s most accomplished singer/songwriters – with 14 albums to her credit – and also the winner of four Canadian Folk Music Awards and a 2003 Juno Award for Roots and Traditional Solo Album of the Year. Her song “Black Flowers” appeared on Claire Lynch’s Grammy-nominated album North by South. “Lynn Miles makes being forlorn feel like a state of grace” - John Pareles, New York Times. 

Lynne Hanson has been playing her brand of “porch music with a little red dirt” for the past 10 years, has released six albums, and won the Colleen Peterson Award for songwriting. “Lynne seems headed for that record territory inhabited by seasoned songwriters such as Nancy Griffith, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Mary Gauthier and Lucinda Williams” - Barry Hammond, Penguin Eggs.

“A bunch of powerful songs, two exceptional and complementary voices, some interesting twists on the arrangements … and a great rapport with the audience.” – MusicRiot (UK) 

Tickets: $20 ($22 at door); $15 Golden Link members ($17 at door); $10 students; free for children 12 and under. Tickets are available in advance at www.goldenlink.org
