Songwriter & folk singer, Lynda Cullen independently released her eagerly awaited 2nd solo album, Smoke Without a Fire in August of this year.
Her latest collection of songs was recorded live at The Hayti Heritage Centre, St.Joseph’s Sanctuary in Durham, North Carolina in November 2018. Local Durham musicians Rob Sharer (guitar and mandolin), Robert Cantrell (drums) and Hugh Crumley (double bass) came on board with the project following a tour in March 2018.
With producer and engineer Dave Tilley at the helm, the live recording brings a touch of the Southern vibe to her instantly recognisable voice and guitar style. Smoke Without a Fire also features guest performances from renowned NC artists Pattie Le Seuer (vocals), Bill Newton (harmonica), John Curry (dobro) and Libby Rodenbough (fiddle)
Since the release of her first solo album, Paper Boat in 2014, Lynda has performed at various folk festivals and gigs throughout Europe, as well as touring in South Korea for a reunion with former bandmates Second Moon.
