It’s the Ricky Lynch Trio!

Time: 9PM

Venue: Counihans Bar

Admission: FREE


Also known as the “Lynch Mob” (Ricky’s two sons also play), they perform a great feast of original material and covers which are masterfully executed.

Ricky Lynch not only reproduces the originals faithfully but he adds his own special interpretation making the end result a spectacular never to be forgotten occasion.



Ricky Lynch has spent more years than anyone can care to remember entertaining people in bar rooms and venues far and wide.  His cast repertoire includes some of the finest moments of roots, folk and rock ‘n’ roll.  Now Lynch finally gets to present an album of original tracks to the world.

Lynch should really have nothing to prove, but in his quietly understated way he reveals a breadth of musical styles over the course of Cant Stand Sitting Down.  No country can stir the romantic and artistic soul quite like the USA, and Can’t Stand Sitting Down is steeped in its lore and musical heritage.

There’s a subtle range of styles here, from depression era folk to acoustic swing blues.  There’s even time to fit in a gentle Tijuana melody in Down On Mexico.  While a lot of the richness of this musical palette comes courtesy of producer Johnny Scott, it is held tightly together by Lynch’s plaintive voice.

In love and life, Lynch’s voice speaks for underdogs, reckless gamblers and doomed mavericks.  Just Lies Again is a bitter lament for the betrayals heaped upon Native Americans by their white conquerers.  The Devil On Your Trail has something of the libidinous quality of its philandering blues man.  Some of the songs chime with such authenticity that you have to remind yourself that these are originals.  Pray To St. Anthony and Darling Rose are vivid essays of desparation and hope, but Lynch saves his best for last with On A Winter’s Afternoon.
