Langham and Gill are coming to Writers In the Round! Two of America's premier singer songwriters on one stage, playing as a duo. Lynn Langham is a Grammy award winner for her song "Old Yellow Moon", title cut of the first Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell duet album. Doug Gill was Grammy nominated for "I Just Come Here For The Music", recorded as a duet by Don Williams and Allison Krauss. These awards are just the icing on a cake of career achievements. In performance these two bring together a powerful musical virtuosity, beautiful singing, and great stories. It's little bit folky, a little bit country, a little bit jazzy and always, it's honest and true. This will be a magical show, not to be missed!
"Lynn Langham and Doug Gill live, the perfect combination. Great , complex compositions, excellent lyrics and musicianship, from this top-notch Nashville duo. A MUST SEE LIVE SHOW!" -Tom Tranchillo, Host Songwriters Studio, KPFT, 90.1

Her song, “Old Yellow Moon” (written with Hank DeVito) was the title cut of Harris and Crowell’s Grammy winning duet album in 2014, which was also named Album of the Year at the 2013 Americana Music Awards Lynn has shared the stage with legends like John Prine, Asleep At The Wheel, Larry Gatlin, Leon Redbone and Cheech and Chong.

Lynn has written soundtracks for two independent films and co-wrote (with Phil Rosenberg) and performs the theme song “I’ll Meet You There” for the movie “Sweet Old World”. She also volunteers, through Operation Song, to write with soldiers dealing with PTSD.In Lynn’s music, you will find a wide swath of wisdom, an open hearted love of life, a sweet lingering touch, a little country, a little gospel, and a little jazz; always a teardrop and a smile. She tours nationally with Doug Gill as Langham and Gill.
