Burritts Rapids Community Hall
Blue Moon Live is thrilled to present celebrated singer/songwriter Lynn Miles live in concert in the cozy and intimate setting of the Burritts Rapids Community Hall.
Lynn Miles first rose to fame in Ottawa in the 1980s while working at the Ottawa Folklore Centre. She has since released 15 albums and been acclaimed around the world. Lynn won a Juno award in 2003 for Roots Traditional Album of the year, and went on to be nominated in the same categories in 2006 and 2011. She is also the recipient of six Canadian Folk Music Awards including 3 for songwriter of the year.
The New York Times wrote that “Lynn Miles brings an otherworldly purity to her tales of love gone wrong… she makes forlorn feel like a state of grace.”
And here’s what reviewer James Diaz had to say: “The music of Lynn Miles is truly one of a kind. Not only is she one of Canada’s best singer‑songwriters, she’s one of the best, period. Folk music has many voices but hers is a voice that stands out, it’s a voice that knows the ways and long twisting back roads of the world, a voice that has lived and conveys that living through every song. It’s a voice we all know. It sings of love, loss, coping, travel, sense of place and purpose, broken promises, what gets us through, what doesn’t, how we defy the odds, making a perfectly beautiful human mess of things along the way.”
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear local legend Lynn Miles live in concert.
Doors open at 7pm. A limited number of tickets may be available at the door (cash only) but advance tickets are highly recommended.
