Lynn Miles, one of Canada’s most accomplished singer/songwriters, will appear at the Glasgow Americana Festival this year.

She is the second act confirmed for the event that takes place in October – Alejandro Escovedo’s gig was announced last week.

With eight albums to her credit, the winner of multiple Canadian Folk Music Awards, and a 2003 Juno Award for Roots and Traditional Solo Album of the Year, Lynn is a real talent with a growing following for her rich, deep emotional songs.

During her career she moved from Ottawa to Los Angeles and back again, with stops in Nashville and Austin.

Her latest CD release, “Fall For Beauty” racked up the kind of reviews many artistes can only dream of.

Maverick Magazine (UK) gave five stars out of five for an album with “ten magical reasons to keep pressing the repeat play button.”

“Lynn is one of the best singer/songwriters to emerge from Canada – and it’s a country that’s produced some of the finest,” said Kevin Morris of the Glasgow Americana Festival.

“It’s a delight she can play at the Festival as I know lots of people are keen to hear her live.

“We hope to reveal more acts in due course.”
