Linda McRae to Perform Here June 22

Canadian country/ singer and songwriter Linda McRae and local singer/songwriter Jim Whitford (Pine Dogs, etc.) will perform a house concert starting at 6 p.m. Sunday, June 22, at the home of Marty Boratin and Susan Tanner, 7341 Nelson Drive, Hamburg.
The cost for the show will be a ridiculously low $10 for McRae and Whitford, with Dee Adams opening. McRae is best known for her time as a member of Spirit of the West and for her three solo CDs, the most recent, "Carve It to the Heart," being released in 2007. On it, McRae goes for even more traditional sounds (she plays a lot more banjo and plays darn good), and "Carve It to the Heart" made it to my best music of 2007 list. The title song, along with "This Winding Road" and "How Can I Bring Her Back" serious standout songs. McRae is also a very engaging live performer.
I hope to have more on this in a few days.
