Event Description
Escape to Create: Linda McRae Concert

SOLD OUT


Her rich contralto voice is described as an instrument of remarkable emotional depth. Her unforgettable melodies and thought-provoking lyrics, imbued with compassion, love and wonder, carve their way into the heart. Her musicianship on claw hammer banjo, guitar and accordion distinguishes her as one of the true, soulful pioneers of honest roots music. 


British Columbia ‘s Entertainment Hall of Fame Pioneer Artist LINDA MCRAE will perform her multi-instrumental magic at Escape To Create’s 7th Annual Valentine To 30A Concert on Friday, February 15th, 7:30pm at the Seaside REP Theatre.  A genuine storyteller with an international touring career spanning over three decades, McRae ‘s pure voice and authentic lyrics have been likened to artists Hank Williams, Patsy Cline and Leonard Cohen. 


McRae first achieved commercial success as a member of Spirit Of The West, Canada’s legendary folk and Celtic band. Since embarking on a solo career in the late 90’s, McRae has released six critically-acclaimed albums of original works imbued with Americana and Bluegrass, Blues, Folk and Gospel influences. Now based in Nashville, she also performs with Canadian mandolin master Doug Cox and Nashville’s twice-nominated Grammy songstress Kim Richie as their trio The Primary Colors.


After performing at Folsom Prison for the first time in 2011, McRae and her husband and manager, the poet James Whitmire, himself a recovering addict, teach their Express Yourself creative writing and songwriting workshops in detox centers, alternative schools and correctional facilities across North America. Inspired by her teaching experiences, McRae’s wrote “Be Your Own Light” as an anthem of hope and redemption. The song was awarded First Place in the 2017 Family Folk Choral Songwriting Competition.
