This Months Film: A SMall Act

Now a Harvard graduate and a Human Rights Lawyer for the United Nations, Chris Mburu decides to find the stranger that changed his life. Inspired by her generosity, he starts a scholarship program of his own and names it for his former benefactor.

LOST LEADERS
Friday, Jan 23 - 8:00 pm, $15.00
Buy Tickets

sponsored in part by WEXT

with special guests The Sea The Sea

The Lost Leaders are Byron Isaacs and Peter Cole. Isaacs on the duo's new album sings and plays bass, guitar and lap steel guitar. Cole sings and plays guitar. The results are seismic, like an earthquake, like a shifting of the tectonic plates, like a leap into another dimension where everything makes sense.
Many in the region know Isaacs from the years he spent performing in the Levon Helm Band. He is also a member of the Midnight Ramble Band, the Dirt Farmer Band and Ollabelle,
The music that Isaacs and Cole make comes from a deep place shaped by history and tradition. But these two guys, even though they claim to be lost, craft tunes of their own that are quite the find.

STEVE FORBERT
Friday, Feb 6 - 8:00 pm, $22.00
Buy Tickets

Steve Forbert came up to New York from his native Mississippi in the late 1970s and promptly earned that "New Dylan" sobriquet with a critically hailed first album, "Alive on Arrival" in 1978 followed the next year by his biggest hit, "Romeo's Tune," on the "Jackrabbit Slim" LP. After that, the hype died down and he kept making good music - honest, moving songs with memorable lyrics about life in a fast-changing America. 35 odd albums after the release of his first, he's a highly respected performer who still gets rave reviews. These days, they are more about his live shows and the connection he forges with his audience. Come have a listen to another of America's great singer songwriters up close and intimate at The Linda

The Latest News

Fri, Jan 17, 2014 - LIVE: Guy Davis @ WAMC-FM’s The Linda, 1/17/14

Guy Davis prefaced his lightning-fast opening number at The Linda by saying, "I've stolen so much, this song doesn't even have a title!" And even if he hadn't name-checked Charlie Patton and Blind Willie McTell after it was all over, the SRO crowd could easily hear about 100 years of the blues coursing through Davis' acoustic 12-string guitar, right down to the off-time beat that recalled Robert Johnson's original version of "Crossroads." But as Davis says he tells his students, "It's okay to steal music - but once you steal it, you have to earn it!" Read More

Sun, Oct 6, 2013 - LIVE: Syd Straw at WAMC-FM’s Performing Arts Studio

ALBANY - It's been more than 20 years since singer-songwriter Syd Straw graced an Albany stage, but those shows at the now long-defunct QE2 still burn brightly in the memories of more than a few who were there back then. Read More
