Doug Cox & Linda McRae

New Moon Folk Club, Edmonton, AB

Linda McRae and Doug Cox have decades of experience as songwriters and performers – for them, it’s all about serving the song and honouring the audience. Canadian-born, Nashville-based, amazing singer Linda McRae is a multi-instrumentalist, adding clawhammer banjo, acoustic and electric guitars, accordion, bass, and foot percussion to the mix. Breaking into the music scene with Canadian supergroup Spirit of the West, Linda has since released six acclaimed records as a solo artist and is an indefatigable “road warrior.” Doug’s virtuosic skills as a multi-instrumentalist that have left him with award nominations and requests to play and record with from multiple recording superstars. A peerless master on guitar, Dobro, mandolin, and Weissenborn, he fluently spans the gamut of Americana, from New Orleans funk to Texas twang.
