Music at MERA: Lynne Hanson

Sun, 28 Nov 2021 - Sun, 28 Nov

Time: 2:00PM

Cost: $25

Too tough for folk and too blues-influenced for country, Lynne Hanson’s brand of “porch music with a little red dirt” can turn on a dime from a sunshine, blue sky ballad to a full-on thunderstorm of gritty Americana swamp from one song to the next. She’s known for her high-energy, roots guitar driven live performances, whether playing solo or with her band The Good Intentions. A closet stand-up comedian, Lynne often leaves the audience howling with laughter with her between-song-banter. Tickets: ticketsplease.ca
