Multimedia Presentation by Celebrated Singer/Songwriter Linda Allen
Beloved singer Linda Allen is celebrating fifty years as a singer/songwriter and activist. She has written more than 100 songs on topics like the environment, women, hope and healing, racial justice, peace, history, whimsy, and more. She has recorded thirteen CDs and has toured extensively throughout the US and beyond.
An outstanding quality of Linda’s music is her vocal interpretation. The expressiveness of her voice is always spot-on. Whether tender or strident, lyrical or percussive, her vocal eloquence adds to the power of her lyrics and music.
Singers like Linda Allen keep folk music from becoming a relic of the past. Linda hears a story, reads a headline, observes a confrontation, senses a broken heart, and then turns it into a song. Her music invites us to stay human.

Linda Allen breathes life into the 19th Amendment story through song and story that is totally charming as well as instructive. Goosebumps and joy were the response of the day.
