About Lynn

Lynn has always lived in Ontario, Canada, moving numerous times throughout the
province. Each change of address has created an opportunity to meet a wonderful cast of new friends.

Her occupations have included every aspect of the florist industry, as well as farming and social worker, and she has served as a church organist and a librarian. In the past few years, Lynn added writer to that list. She enjoys song-writing, singing and playing piano.

Lynn has short stories published in four anthologies, plus numerous articles (featuring her own photography) have appeared in Our Canada magazine. Lynn’s story “Grand Skating” was voted winner in the fiction category of the “Winning Words” literary competition.

This song was written for, and performed during Northumberland Festival of the Arts 2022.

This video was created to assist with the promotion of the 2022 Northumberland Festival of the Arts.
Christopher Cameron created a podcast to promote his new book Thorneside Stories: A Mix of Sun and Cloud. Lynn wrote the podcast theme song, and What Fun! recorded it at Northumberland Music Studio / Studio 29.

How What Fun! got started

In the spirit of collaboration and celebration, Northumberland musicians Lynn C. Bilton, Christopher Cameron and Marie-Lynn Hammond got together to record Lynn’s new song, Spread the Word.

The trio had so much fun creating this music video at Northumberland Music Studio in Warkworth that they decided to name their group What Fun!
