New Day is the title of the upcoming CD from Claire Lynch – her fifth for Rounder Records – and her new band, the appropriately named Claire Lynch Band. The band includes Jim Hurst on guitar, David Harvey on mandolin, and Missy Raines on bass. Guest appearances on the CD were made by Stuart Duncan (fiddle), Charlie Cushman (banjo), Alison Brown (banjo), and Rob Ickes (dobro). It was recorded at the new Rec Room Studio by celebrated engineer (and studio owner) Ben Surratt, who also has the distinction of being married to the aforementioned Ms. Raines.
New Day is expected to be released on March 28, and advance orders can be placed on Claire’s web site. Radio and press promos are being sent out now, and copies for sale are anticipated shortly. Claire has a CD release celebration scheduled for April 15 at the Station Inn in Nashville, and you can get details about this, and all her other shows, on her web site.
