LYNNE HANSON & THE GOOD INTENTIONS
LYNNE HANSON & THE GOOD INTENTIONS, SATURDAY 17TH NOVEMBER 2018
Growing up in Ottawa, Canada Lynne Hanson started playing guitar as a teenager, eventually working her way to an Award winning debut CD in 2006. Two more albums quickly followed and each garnered critical appraisal. Lynne then took time out, before returning in 2014 with the excellent ‘River of Sand’, which saw her writing mature into a more intuitive and visceral style. ‘Uneven Ground’ followed in 2017 and explores the realm of giving sound advice through song writing and fighting back against the devil within us.
At first listen, her warm but gritty music leads you to think of the America’s south. Her sound is born honestly, through a lifetime of experiences and influences expressed through rock, blues and roots music that bleeds from her very being. Her songs are familiar and comfortable, yet fearless and strong. Her bluesy croon is pure and full of fortitude. No matter what the song there is a weight and warmth to the lyrics.
At the start of 2018, Lynne teamed up with her long time Lynn Miles to release an album and tour under the name of the LyNNeS. It was a great success. Now she is back with her band The Good Intentions, which again features MJ Dandeneau on bass, with new members, Kevin Corbett on lead guitar & mandolin and Cody Iwasiuk on drums. Their previous performances at Town Hall Live have been a joy and we are sure that this concert will be no different.
Supporting, as a special guest will be AMY ANDREWS from Atlanta, Georgia. Amy has a powerful voice, that can change from soaring to reserved and is reminiscent of Eva Cassidy. There is an intimacy in Amy’s live performances that make the listener feel she is singing to them personally. Her voice is strong, seductively smooth and full of emotion. Earlier this year she released her debut album ‘The Best’.
Advance tickets for this concert are priced at £13 and can be obtained from OneStop (Kirton), from Brian on 01652 649230 or www.wegottickets.com.
