Karen Hudson River Band presents Living in the USA Tribute to Linda Ronstadt
Back by popular demand, Karen Hudson River Band presents Linda Ronstadt’s classic 1978 album “Living In the USA” plus some more of her hits, with a tribute to everyone’s favorite female rock singer of the 70’s.
Playing for a packed house last year at the Triad, Hudson returns with the same great band for an extended show with special guests. Hudson has worked as a recording artist and country rock bandleader in NYC since the ‘90’s and has peppered her sets with classic Ronstadt songs during shows at the world-famous Rodeo Bar and beyond. Hudson’s song “Late Bloomer,” from her acclaimed 2013 cd Sonic Bloom, which was produced by Eric “Roscoe” Ambel, was featured in the Farm Arts Collective’s Dream on the Farm eco-conscious play, The Scientists. Hudson’s sassy singing sunflower strumming her guitar made the cover of the New York Times Arts section in August 2021, in a photo essay by Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist Michelle V. Agins.
Recorded at the Sound Factory and Produced by Peter Asher, “Living in the USA” churned out hits across radio formats including Alison (Elvis Costello), Ooh Baby Baby (Smokey Robinson), Just One Look (Doris Troy, Hollies), Mohammed's Radio (Warren Zevon) and Back in the USA (Chuck Berry). Personnel on the album included Waddy Wachtel, Russell Kunkel, Dan Dugmore, Don Grolnick, Kenny Edwards, Andrew Gold, and David Sanborn.
Backed by a fantastic rock band, the music will be a nostalgic trip down memory lane looking back at a time when things were cooler, radio was way better, and that California country rock sound warmed you like the summer sun. This show will also include some of her hits sung by local luminaries.
Band members include Mike Fornatale, Charly Roth, Tommy DeVito, Jeff Gordon, Glenn Spivack, Jeff Hudgins, Shu Nakamura and Jayden Gladstone. With special guest Americana singers Rebecca Turner, Stephanie Marie, Sarah Kinsey, Katie Curley and Sam Brown.
