Linda Ronstadt pioneered "country-rock" in the early 1970s, blending folk and country themes and harmonies with rock and roll arrangements. Her power-house voice could sweetly communicate heartbreak, like in the anthem, "Long, Long Time," or belt out rousing numbers like "When Will I Be Loved?" She famously collaborated with the era's best writers and producers such as J.D. Souther, Glenn Frey, Warren Zevon, Lowell George, Emmylou Harris, and many, many others. She is the recipient of 11 Grammys and numerous other industry awards, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014. This show, “I Can’t Let Go: A Musical Tribute to Linda Ronstadt,” will feature many of Ronstadt's significant works from 1967-1980, including songs like "You're No Good," "Poor, Poor Pitiful Me," and "Tracks of My Tears." The concert is a collaboration of artists who have been a vital part of the Rochester arts scene for many years, and is their third installment of Ronstadt tribute concerts. Band members: Dianna Parks on lead vocal, Carl Stephenson and Kevin Kleist on guitars, Eric Straubmuller on keyboards, John Wheeler on pedal steel, Dan Van Hook on drums, Tim Hildebrandt on bass, Bob Sanborn on mandolin and harmonica, Tiffany Strande on violin and vocals, Becca Stiles-Nogosek on vocals, Steve Lalama on banjo and dobro, and Kevin McGarry on saxophone.
