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

This Months Film: GRAZERS
With interest in a farm-to-table food on the rise, a small band of upstate New York farmers sees an opportunity to hold on to their endangered farms by raising and selling grass-fed beef. Forming a cooperative, they soon discover that the marketplace surprisingly can't support their simple ambitions. Jackson and Teale follow their efforts for two years, through near collapse to an uncertain future, exposing in microcosm the struggles of small-scale farming in our modern, industrial world. An intimate, character-driven chronicle of the group's struggle Grazers: A Cooperative Story illuminates timely issues regarding our food system. At stake are their farms, the small communities around them, the health of the land and a way of life.
