Americana, roots music, rough-around-the-edges folk, call it what you will but award-winning Canadian songwriter Lynne Hanson prefers “porch music with a little red dirt”.
Hanson’s songs are expressed in a rich voice coupled with accomplished guitar playing that demands repeated listening. She grew up in Ottawa, Canada, and starting playing guitar when she was 14, learning on a hand-me-down from an older brother. She released her award-winning debut album – Things I Miss – in 2006.
Lynne will appear at the Puzzle Inn, Sowerby Bridge on Thursday, October 2,when she’ll be playing songs from her new record River of Sand, which has been described as Gretchen Peters meets Mary Gauthier.
