The LYNNeS are Juno winning songwriter Lynn Miles and another award-winning songwriter Lynne Hanson.

The two heartbreak poets are multi-instrumentalists (piano, acoustic, electric guitar, mandolin), fusing tight vocal harmonies with hauntingly gritty lyrics....and humour. The two play off each other live, and have been known to leave the audience in stitches with their between-song-banter.

Here is a sample of the acclaim they are getting for their debut duo album “Heartbreak Song For The Radio” from a five-star review in the Winnipeg Free Press: "Their first album together is breathtaking, mood-altering evidence to their marvellous combined talents.... has the kind of spacious, rolling thunder restlessness Bob Dylan attained with Daniel Lanois all those years ago. It’s that good."

Lynn Miles is one of Canada’s most accomplished singer/songwriters, with fourteen albums to her credit, the winner of four Canadian Folk Music awards (including 2011 English Songwriter of the Year), 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, NY Times

Lynne Hanson has been playing her brand of “porch music with a little red dirt” for the past ten years, has released six albums, won the Colleen Peterson Award for songwriting, and been nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award. “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

The two songwriters are not new to working together, having toured and written songs off for years, and with Miles having produced two of Hanson's albums (River of Sand, 2014 and 7 Deadly Spins, 2015).

The Motley Kitchen is proud to present this series in collaboration with the Northern Lights Festival.
