Linda Tillery is a veteran vocalist, percussionist, producer and cultural historian. Since the 1960's, Tillery has been regarded as one of the Bay Area's most versatile singers. Her powerful, shimmering alto voice has been showcased in such groups as the Loading Zone, Zasu Pitts Memorial Orchestra, the Solid Sender's and Bobby McFerrin's Voicestra. A native San Franciscan, Linda has Texas soul, rooted in her mother's stories and food and her uncle Tom Anderson's deft blues whistle. In the 90's Linda took command of an even broader repertoire, tapping into the diverse resources of African American roots music. Linda’s appearance at the Hayward Public Library promises to be a fascinating evening of conversation, music and wisdom. Call 510-881-7980 for info.
