Dear Sister showcases Lynch and her razor sharp band (Mark Schatz – bass, Matt Wingate – guitar, mandolin, Bryan McDowell – fiddle, mandolin, guitar) on a rock-solid, 10 song set of bluegrassy folk and Americana. Standouts include “Doin’ Time” (with Tim O’Brien on vocals and bouzouki), the title track “Dear Sister”—an anthemic ballad of the Civil War written by Lynch and Louisa Branscomb based on recently discovered historic letters written by a relative of Louisa’s on the eve of the battle of Stone’s River—and the Pierce Pettis penned “That Kind of Love.” Taken as a whole, the songs constitute what is possibly Claire’s most personal record to date and certainly one of the most broadly accessible albums of her storied career.
