May 12: A Mother’s Day Matinee with The Lynnes.

This house concert thing is kinda fun. We had such a good time hosting Jory Nash on March 23 we’re gonna do it again, and this time with a giant treat for anyone who is, or has, a mother: The Lynnes.

Lynne Hanson and Lynn Miles are The LYNNeS, two titanic songwriting and singing talents combining forces to bring multiple instruments, tight harmonies, and gritty and truthful lyrics to any stage they play on.

And in between songs, the two play off each other. Anyone who’s seen Lynn Miles here at BobCat knows just how funny she is; Lynne Hanson is a worthy partner with her own wit and sensibility.

The New York Times says “Lynn Miles makes being forlorn feel like a state of grace.” Penguin Eggs says Lynne Hanson “seems headed for that record territory inhabited by seasoned songwriters such as Nanci Griffith, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Mary Gauthier and Lucinda Williams.”

Their first album as a team, Heartbreak Song for the Radio, led to two Canadian Folk Music Awards for English Songwriter of the Year and Ensemble of the Year.

After our Mother’s Day matinee show with The Lynnes, you’ll simply say: “Thank you for the music.”
