ONE OF the finest songwriters of her generation, Canadian legend Lynn Miles makes her Flowerfield debut on February 12 at 8pm fresh from the success of an acclaimed brand new album.
Lynn is one of Canada’s most accomplished singer/songwriters. With seven albums to her credit, the winner of multiple Canadian Folk Music Awards, and a 2003 Juno Award for Roots & Traditional Solo Album of the Year, she has certainly found her strength over time.
Through a career that has seen her move from Ottawa to Los Angeles and back again, with stops in Nashville and Austin, she has always written music with unbridled feeling and vulnerability.
Miles has consistently been unflinching in putting herself out there. Now with her eighth studio offering Fall For Beauty the voice of her experience has truly elevated her songwriting to its richest depth of emotion.
While her melodies undulate between traditional country and folk roots, on Fall For Beauty, it’s her sensitivity to the world around her that pours itself directly into Miles’ music to make it stand out.
The powerful secret behind Miles’ music is her astute observations of life, its trials and triumphs, and these are the hallmark of sincerity in her music. The gritty honesty of her music never falters – neither does her unshakeable ability to make even the most melancholy lyrics sound as if they are brimming with hope and grace.
Lynn Miles is a musician in the rarest sense of the word, an unmistakable talent, an eye for both the subtle and sweet that can only be unearthed with experience. This looks like being one of Flowerfield’s unforgettable songwriter experiences – you have to be there.
All tickets for the show are priced at £12, and they’re available from the reception at Flowerfield Arts Centre. You can also pay over the phone with your credit or debit card on (028) 7083 1400.
