Linda TilleryFreight favorite Linda Tillery is having a birthday, and she wants to celebrate the music that shaped her as an artist – she’ll be singing songs from the 1960s and 70s by Gil Scott-Heron, Richie Havens, Donny Hathaway, Nina Simone, the Staples Singers, Marvin Gaye, and more, as well as a healthy helping of American country blues. Her all-star band will include Tammy Hall-Hawkins on piano, Ruth Davies on acoustic bass, Ray Obiedo on guitar, Leon Joyce Jr. on drums, Javier Navarette on percussion, and special guest guitarist/pianist, Brett Bratnatt.

 

Linda’s shimmering voice has powered many of the Bay Area’s most popular bands over the past four decades. A central figure in the women’s music movement in the 1970s and 80s, she was also a founding member of Bobby McFerrin’s vocal ensemble Voicestra, and currently leads the Cultural Heritage Choir, performing African American roots music. “If I was the heart of Voicestra,” says Bobby McFerrin, “Linda was the soul.” For an evening of soul and spirit and musical magic, come celebrate Linda’s birthday at the Freight!
