The WDVX Blue Plate Special – 12/2 – Corrie Lynn Green / Jeremy Wells
December 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Corrie Lynn Green is an Appalachian Folk Singer from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. She was discovered by well-known producer and recording equipment engineer D.W. Fearn during the pandemic. She had been writing stories about her life growing up in rural Appalachia since she was young, challenging the ideas instilled by her evangelical upbringing, and education status and bringing authenticity and grit to the stage as if her life depended on it.
Creating a new spin on folk/americana/appalachia genre, self taught singer/songwriter Corrie Lynn Greeen writes and reflects the secrets and stories of life in a small holler town drawing from her deep roots in rural Appalachia, she also walks down a path of self discovery through personal heartbreak, rebellion, hardship, joy and acceptance.
At some point in her young adult life during a walkabout, she found a broken down abandoned, handmade clawhammer banjo and slowly taught herself to play.
After walking down a path of personal healing, Corrie Lynn became serious about writing, playing and singing with what has become known as her very engaging, signature voice. At this time she continues to ride the waves of this very fast moving musical current. After listening to Corrie Lynn Green’s vocals and lyrics, you will find they cut through time and render genre obsolete.
She released “Blow Away”, her debut album in May of 2022, then went on to win third place in the acclaimed Stephan George SongWriter’s competition in Tuscon, Arizona for 2022 and has been recognized in other national songwriting competitions for 2023. With a new album on the horizon, Corrie Lynn Green hopes to take you on a storyteller’s journey through the stages of a life lived the mountain way.
