The LYNNeS

Biography

Lynn Miles and Lynne Hanson are both accomplished singers, songwriters, and performers. Combining forces as a duo, The LYNNeS offer heartfelt (and heartbreak) songs, first-rate musicianship, and beautiful harmonies – all liberally dosed with humour and wit. On her own, Lynn Miles has 14 albums to her credit, four Canadian Folk Music awards (including English Songwriter of the year in 2011), and a 2003 Juno award for her album, Unravel. Her song “Black Flowers” was included on Claire Lynch’s Grammy-nominated recording and shows Lynn’s ability to write beautifully evocative songs. Lynne Hanson has released six albums, has won the Colleen Peterson Award for songwriting, and has been nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award. The LYNNeS debut recording, Heartbreak Song for the Radio (2018) pairs hauntingly gritty lyrics with tight vocal harmonies. Quickly catching the attention of critics, this album earned The LYNNeS honours for English Songwriter of the Year and Ensemble of the Year at the 2018 Canadian Folk Music Awards. Lynn Miles graced the Festival stage in 2000 and 2012; this year marks the first appearance for Lynne Hanson and for The LYNNeS.
