WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU HIRE LYNN TO PERFORM SOLO
Lynn may be hired to sing one song or many, depending upon the client's needs. Her performance will include Irish, English and Scottish folk and traditional songs and ballads, performed unaccompanied in her strong soprano voice. Many of these traditional songs have messages that are obscure to the modern audience, so Lynn will briefly explain these hidden meanings before performing the songs.
Because she is unencumbered by song books, music stands, amps and instruments, Lynn is highly portable and has performed in her trademark red tavern wench costume on stage as well as on warm hearths, freezing streetcorners, tiny dining rooms, and vast ballrooms.
Lynn commands her audience's attention with her wit, high energy and good humor. She knows how to have a good time and how to draw her audience into the fun.
Since many of these songs were sung in taverns, her broad repertoire includes some songs of a bawdy nature. "Know what I mean, nudge, nudge, wink, wink?" A consultation with the client ahead of time will be used to set the tone of the performance.
