Tradition is important to award-winning, Nashville-based singer/songwriter/musician Debra Lyn. Her earliest musical memories are of her Grandmother, Betty Lewis, also singer in the Albany/Troy, New York area in the 50s. Betty gave Debra her first guitar and encouraged her musical dreams.
“Blue Sun Rises,” Debra Lyn’s third CD for Nashville-based Palette Records, brings together traditional music that clearly speaks to Debra’s Irish/Scottish/English heritage and intricately weaves these influences with original material. Inspired versions of songs such as the Scottish favorites “The Bonnie Banks o’ Loch Lomond” and “The Parting Glass,” a popular American Folk/Gospel song “Wayfaring Stranger,” and a lesser known British folk song, “Billy Taylor” with an upbeat feel, make the cut.
