crowds in her Three Rivers Arts Festival debut at 7:30 pm, Friday, June
20, 2008, on the Festival Main Stage. All Three Rivers Arts Festival
main stage performances are free and open to the public.
a Grammy for Best New Artist nearly a decade into her career, Lynne’s
husky voice and soulful performances have garnished critical acclaim.
Her twelve albums span country, rock, jazz and pop, and 2008’s Just a
Little Lovin’, her most recent release, features Lynne’s simple
renditions of classic Dusty Springfield tunes. Her music exposes her
fundamental vulnerability and subtle independence, reflecting an
exchange of influences that manifest themselves in her collection of
raw and heartfelt originals and masterfully redefined covers.
Three Rivers Arts Festival tries to present artists who either
epitomize a style or defy genre altogether,” says Elizabeth Reiss,
Festival Executive Director. “Shelby Lynne has done both, so we’re
excited to present her for the first time this year.”
Three Rivers Arts Festival presents Shelby Lynne at 7:30 pm, Friday,
June 20, 2008. Three Rivers Arts Festival Main Stage. Free.
