With natural charisma and effortless soul, Barbara Lynn burst through the barriers of early R&B and rock ’n’ roll on a wave of sheer talent. Growing up in Beaumont, Texas—where the blues was always on the radio—she started fronting her own bands as a teenager. Lynn is a rare triple threat, famous for her distinctive left-handed rhythm guitar, smoldering vocals, and vast well of original songs, including her biggest hit “You’ll Lose a Good Thing.” Tonight, this true musical pioneer illuminates six decades of American music.
