7:00 – 9:30 p.m.
A Jim and Lynda McLennan performance includes instrumental guitar pieces from Jim and vocal tunes from Lynda. One moment it’s a “folkafied ” version of a standard like Ain ‘t Misbehavin ‘ or Fly Me to the Moon ; next up might be an acoustic nod to the R&B world of Sam Cooke or Curtis Mayfield. The only criteria for a McLennan pass at a tune is that it be a gr eat song.
Seasoned performers, their genuine and engaging stage demeanor immediately puts audiences at ease.
Jim McLennan is best-known for his profile in the world of fly fishing, but he has also been a serious musician for over 40 years. In the 1970s McLennan met American acoustic guitar guru Stefan Grossman and subsequently recorded several of his arrangements for Stefan Grossman’s Kicking Mule Record Company. His music has also been featured in Guitar Player magazine.
Lynda is a singer who puts her personal stamp on tunes from Gershwin, Foster, Berlin, and others, in a musical style that can best be described as “folk jazz.”
