Tennessee musician named USA Fellow

Hermitage, Tenn. (WVLT) - The United States Artists association has named Tennessee bluegrass musician Claire Lynch one of fifty USA Fellows.

Lynch will receive a $50,000 USA Fellowship grants for artistic excellence from the national artist advocacy group.

USA Fellows include artists in the fields of architecture and design crafts and traditional arts, dance, literature, media arts, music, theater arts, and visual arts. Over the past seven years, USA has put $17.5 million directly into the hands of America’s most innovative artists – many of whom, despite their achievements, still struggle to make ends meet.
