“Hanson is a fine singer whose voice is strong, soaked in experience, well capable of rocking out with the best … on the quieter numbers there is always a sense of depth and hard-earned wisdom.” – Americana UK

Too tough for folk and too blues-influenced for country, Ottawa-based musician Lynne Hanson has her own brand of porch music that can turn on a dime from a sunshine, blue sky ballad to a full-on thunderstorm of gritty Americana swamp from one song to the next. Her hard-living music has garnered her the nickname “Canada’s Queen of Americana.”

And while her deep, bluesy croon has drawn comparisons to Lucinda Williams and Gillian Welch, it’s the poetry of her lyrics that really sets her apart. Hanson is known for her high-energy, roots guitar driven live performances, whether playing solo or with her band the Good Intentions. She has an uncanny way of connecting with her audience with an authenticity that is as entertaining as it is disarming. Joining her for this concert is Blair Michael Hogan on guitar.

The prolific songwriter has released nine albums along with two books of poetry over her 16-year solo career. She has toured extensively across North America, Europe, and the UK, and appeared at leading international festivals. She has also toured as support for Grammy-nominated artists like Gretchen Peters, Steve Forbert, and Albert Lee. Lynne Hanson released her latest album “Ice Cream in November” in April 2022.
