Linda is a UK songwriter who has found inspiration in female Bluegrass and Country artists such as Claire Lynch, Cathy Chiavola and Alison Krauss. A writer of lyrics for over thirty years, she has a wide repertoire of songs ranging from pop and blues to her beloved bluegrass.
The guitarist, bassist, mandolin player and singer discovered her favourite genre whilst covering a UK festival for her local newspaper.
“That was back in 1996 and I had never heard this kind of playing, but I was blown away by the energy it created and I have been to festivals either picking or performing ever since.” Linda says.
Linda went on to cut a CD with some Uk pickers in 2006, writing the title track and singing some bluegrass and country favourites.
A visit to the home of Virginia, USA followed in 2008 and she performed at the Carter Family Fold as a guest of the Whitetop Mountain Band.
After forming her own band ‘Cash, Carter & Co’ Linda performed with the three piece at concerts and UK festivals, singing the songs of the Carter Family, Johnny Cash and June Carter.
Lately Linda has been concentrating on writing material for other artists to record and is now in the process of introducing her new songs.
