The LYNNeS are Lynn Miles and Lynne Hanson – two award winning singer-songwriters from Ottawa, Canada. 

Lynn Miles is one of Canada’s most accomplished singer/songwriters. With fourteen albums to her credit, the winner of multiple Canadian Folk Music awards (2011 English Songwriter of the Year), and a 2003 Juno award for Roots and Traditional Solo Album of the Year, she has certainly found her strength over time. Through a career that has seen her move from Ottawa to Los Angeles and back again, with stops in Nashville and Austin TX., and a healthy touring schedule that regularly takes her through the US, Europe and across Canada, she has always created and performed music with unbridled feeling and vulnerability. 

Lynne Hanson mixes gritty ballads with driving blues-tinged roots rock. Over the past ten years she’s been a Kerrville New Folk Finalist, nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award, and won the Colleen Peterson Award for songwriting. She’s released 6 albums, and toured across Canada, the US, Europe and the UK, most recently with her band The Good Intentions. She's toured in support of Grammy-nominated songwriters (Gretchen Peters and Steve Forbert) and Grammy award winning guitar player Albert Lee. The LYNNeS are two very strong women with something significant to say. And we think you're going to want to have a listen.

Traces of his journey illuminate his newest album.  Begin with its title, Still Here, an assertion that he has learned from life and expressed its lessons in songs.  Many have taken note already, including MOJO Magazine (“Gallardo nods to country’s most distant past while sounding like its very near future”), No Depression (“highly recommended to fans of great songwriters”) and, several times, Rolling Stone, who most recently heralded him as one of “10 Artists You Need To Know” in 2017.

And lyrics have always been central to his writing.  Poetic sensitivity, honesty, and sprinkles of humor find common ground throughout Still Here. The album opens introspectively with “Something I Gotta Learn” (“I’d face the sideways rain but it’s easier to complain. / Is this my curse or just something I gotta learn?”) and “Kicking Up The Pavement” (“You know I am a proud man. / I never said I was a good man.”) From there, it winds through a landscape of wry resignation with “Same Ol’ Alley Talkin’ Blues” (“Life ain’t easy. In fact it’s rough / until you’ve figured out you’ve had enough”), weary wisdom on “The Losing Kind” (“This life I’ve been living, I’m too old to give it up now. / I’ve been singing to strangers in the hopes that they feel it somehow”), and more.

​In addition to catching one of his live shows, fans can hear Gallardo's music prominently featured in films like "Jolene" and Jackass Presents "Bad Grandpa," as well as the television series "The Vampire Diaries," ABC / CMT's "Nashville," and Netflix series "The Ranch."

Show Starts at 7:45pm

There are many useful rules to live by, but for Whitney Rose, there’s one that stands alone as a guiding principle for life as she knows it: Rule 62. The origin of the rule is best summed up by the poignant, pronoun-adjusted excerpt from Alcoholics Anonymous’ Tradition Four cited above, a treatise on how to find harmony between ambition and self-awareness, and how to learn one’s lessons with humor and humility.  This truism, officially worded as “Don’t Take Yourself Too Damn Seriously,” is the origin of both the title and ethos of Whitney Rose’s album, Rule 62.


Rewind to January 2017.  Rose was primed to release South Texas Suite, a countrypolitan valentine to Austin, Texas. (Rolling Stone noted that it “bristles with local flavor.”) Days before the EP hit the streets and Rose kicked off a four-month worldwide tour, the burgeoning songwriting force (and “country hair” disciple) packed her boots for Nashville, where she entered BlackBird Studio A to reconvene with the Mavericks’ Raul Malo.  In one short week, Rose, Malo and co-producer Niko Bolas channeled the tumult, turbulence and tension outside of the studio into Rose’s sophomore worldwide release, which includes nine self-penned songs.  Playful yet uncompromising, Whitney Rose reminds us of popular music’s rich history of strong female voices and perspectives, and on Rule 62, she channels her inner Nancy Sinatra, Bobbie Gentry and Françoise Hardy. Rule 62 finds Rose “breaking up with patriarchy,” a breakup evidenced by new songs that show verve, swagger and self-assurance in Rose’s instinctive sense of tone, broadened scope and attention to detail.

Carter Sampson is an Okie-born singer/songwriter with a big voice. The Oklahoma City-based artist is blessed by a musical family legacy that includes talents like Roy Orbison.

Her creativity has matured into a dedicated and passionate performer that makes her a favourite female vocalist.

Carter’s empowering music appeals to a wide range of folk, who are incredibly and admirably loyal to her and her work. She’s the founder and director of Oklahoma City’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls, which always partners with nonprofit organisations that empower girls and women through music education.

The inspiring artist averages about 220 shows annually – in areas like Oklahoma and Arkansas, as well as Colorado, New Mexico and Texas. She completed a successful tour of Europe in 2016, which included an appearance at the Maverick Festival.  But as the self-penned ‘Queen of Oklahoma,’ Sampson’s red boots are happy when they’re on her home turf.

Her fourth full-length studio album, ‘Wilder Side’, was released in 2016, is a soulful and soft country masterpiece.  Focusing on themes of heartbreak and the open road, Wilder Side is the kind of pure country record that has far more in common with classic releases from the likes of Patsy Cline and Emmylou Harris than it does with anything one will find on country radio.  Fellow Oklahoma artists Ali Harter and John Moreland made appearances on the record lending their distinctive voices, perfectly complementing Sampson's beautifully sorrowful vocals. And that more than anything is what drives this record, Sampson's breathtaking voice.  Like ‘Good for the Meantime’ it features the heady handy work of producer/multi-instrumentalist Travis Linville, who, like Sampson, has a unique sound all his own.
