Graham Lindsey

Graham Lindsey brings a deep respect for the traditions that inform his inventive Celtic tunes. A gifted multi-instrumentalist, he brings an energetic approach to the mandolin, tenor banjo, guitar (or some combination of them all) to every performance he plays. Graham’s trad rhythms and uncanny ability to make every tune his own excites audiences and fellow session players alike. His debut album TradHead (2019) was nominated in the Instrumental Solo Artist category at the Canadian Folk Music Awards (2020), and the first single, “Fractions” from his second album received the 2021 Songs From the Heart Instrumental Award from Folk Music Ontario. Graham’s dynamic stage presence as a solo artist is only amplified when playing with other fine musicians. When he leaves the stage at the 36th annual Mission Folk Music Festival, his catchy tunes will be stuck in your ears for days.
