Golden Link Folk Singing Society is hosting award-winning songwriters The LYNNes.

Lynn Miles and Lynne Hanson are talented multi-instrumentalists hailing from Canada, and together they fuse tight vocal harmonies and hauntingly gritty lyrics. In 2018 they won the Canadian Folk Music Award for English Songwriter of the Year and Ensemble of the Year.

Miles is one of Canada’s most accomplished singer/songwriters. She has 14 studio albums under her belt, has won four Canadian Folk Music Awards and a 2003 Juno Award for Roots and Traditional Solo Album of the Year. She’s even had a song nominated for a Grammy Award.

Hanson has been playing music for the last decade, and she has branded her art as “porch music with a little red dirt.” So far she has released six albums and has won the Colleen Peterson Award for Songwriting.

The two are coming together for another exciting local performance on Saturday June 8 at 7:30 p.m. at the Rochester Christian Reformed Church. goldenlink.org

Tours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday June 1 and Sunday June 2. landmarksociety.org
