From parlor to porch and from pleasure garden to concert hall, Linda Russell sings the tunes and tells the stories of Victorian New York. Accompanying herself on dulcimer and guitar, she explores the era through love songs, patriotic anthems, minstrel tunes, hymns and Stephen Foster Melodies.
Having served for many years as a balladeer for the National Park Service at Federal Hall on Wall Street, Ms. Russell now takes her music to historic sites, schools and festivals throughout the country. New York appearances have included Lincoln Center and the Carnegie Hall Folk Festival and the New-York Historical Society.
