Lynne Hanson, Live @ The Burdock, April 1st-2017

Lynne Hanson is an Ottawa singer songwriter very much steeped in the Americana tradition. Got a chance to see her sing songs from her new album “Uneven Ground” last week at the Burdock in Toronto. This is her 6th release and it’s solid from beginning to end. The writing is excellent, the backing band superb. Her vocal style is unique though I heard  traces of Lucinda, Bonnie and Mary Gauthier. I’ve included a couple here from the night, including a song written after she immersed herself in binge watching five seasons of “Sons of Anarchy” in a week. Ms. Hanson has embarked on a Canadian and  European tour in support of the release.  You can find out more about Lynne here
