Booking Inquiry

Pure substance. Unbridled and fully realized talent, CanadianNashville based multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter Linda McRae is an experienced recording artist and songwriting instructor. From her days with the iconic Platinum recording Canadian Celtic band, Spirit of the West, to everything she has done since, Linda remains an artist full of integrity. Playing banjo, guitar and accordion in an unflaggingly authentic, deeply satisfying, and refreshingly acoustic style with a big dose of soul and skilled musicality, McRae’s unforgettable melodies and thought-provoking lyrics make her a captivating artist. She has performed in venues as diverse as the Orpheum Theatre with the Vancouver Symphony to New Folsom Prison with the “in house blues band” where she facilitates writing workshops for the inmates. These experiences lead to the creation of her Express Yourself Writing Workshops currently being presented in North American correctional institutions and at-risk youth facilities. She is a BC Entertainment Hall of Fame Pioneer Inductee and a Boston Family Folk Chorale Songwriting Competition winner.

“There is a Linda McRae sound. This Linda McRae sounds like it’s a bottle of wine that has been hidden in a cool damp cellar for 75 years and only recently was uncorked. The yin iteration of Orbison meets Dylan.”
-John Apice, No Depression

“She keeps cranking out great songs, and she’s never sounded better. Great grooves and some killer playing. In three words, this album kicks.”
-Mike Sadava, Penguin Eggs Magazine
