A singer-songwriter musician of the old school, with decades of experience, you may think you know what Linda McRae is up to. That is until she throws you a curve with a new twist: David Bowie on Banjo?! Linda manages to bend the rules and the genres, proving that stripping a song clean brings one back to their roots. With her new release, GOING TO THE WELL, Canadian/Nashville based Linda McRae takes a deep draw, fresh and cool, on iconic influences, covering the likes of David Bowie, Willie P. Bennett, Richard Thompson, Don Williams and Bill Kirchen. Linda’s love of Canadian, American and British music early on in her career resulted in multiple band configurations from roots-rock to punk to folk. These bands included the platinum selling group, Spirit of the West. Her deep contribution to the Canadian music scene resulted in her being honoured as a 2016 British Columbia Entertainment Hall of Fame “Pioneer” inductee.
