Lynne Hanson (CAN)

Too tough for folk and too blues influenced for country, LYNNE HANSON's brand of "porch music with a little red dirt" 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. The Ottawa songwriter is known for her high-energy, roots guitar driven live performances, whether playing solo or with her band the Good Intentions.

Lynne is a two-time Canadian Folk Music Award winner (2018 English Songwriter, Ensemble of the Year), a recipient of the Colleen Peterson Songwriting Award, winner of the Blues and Roots Radio International Song Contest, two-time Folk Music Ontario Songs From The Heart Blues Award winner, a two-time Indie Acoustic Project Alt-Country album of the year winner, and a two-time Kerrville New Folk finalist.

Lynne has performed in venues and festivals across North America and Europe. Her latest album "Just Words" was released in February 2020.
