Claire Lynch and the Front Porch String Band 

When: Fri., May 28, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $12
After bidding farewell to veteran bandmember Jim Hurst earlier this year, Claire Lynch — one of the few artists who can convincingly fit songs from both Bill Monroe and Garth Brooks alongside her own — has been introducing new guitar man Matt Wingate to audiences around the country (and now to Nashville). Those with sharp eyes will have noticed Wingate in years past, including a long stint with Georgia’s Lovell Sisters, and the new gig puts him in a spotlight for which he’s more than ready. With an intriguing mix of wide-eyed enthusiasm, wry bemusement and disarming faith, Lynch continues to score big with releases like last year’s Whatcha Gonna Do. Is she reaching out from a folk base to bluegrass audiences or vice versa? (The answer is: “Who cares?”)
