Claire has such emotion, such control and such beauty in her voice. I can only wish I could sing that good.' -Patty Loveless
From her early days with The Front Porch String Band through her acclaimed albums as a solo artist, Claire Lynch has earned a reputation as one of the finest singers and interpreters of bluegrass music. Hers is a voice like no other, with a delicate lilt and warm delivery that gracefully illuminates a lyric. 'New Day,' her fifth Rounder album, is a collection of moving, melodic songs, all exquisitely sung by Claire and deftly played by her band Jim Hurst (guitar), David Harvey (mandolin), and Missy Raines (bass), and guests including Stuart Duncan (fiddle), Charlie Cushman (banjo), Alison Brown (banjo), and Rob Ickes (Dobro).
