The Linda is proud to have hosted a wide variety of quality artists from a wide range of musical genres. We book primarily in house along with working with local and regional promoters on a show by show basis. We are usually booked at least 3-6months in advance. If you would like to enquire about playing the Linda or booking an artist please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Though we understand how much effort it takes to get your work out there, appreciate your considering our venue and welcome submissions we cannot guarantee a response.
The Linda WAMC’s Performing Arts Studio is owned and operated by WAMC Northeast Public Radio, based in Albany, New York. WAMC boasts a coverage area like that of very few other public radio stations. Our signal reaches into portions of seven Northeastern states, and as far north as Montreal, Canada. We have many online visitors as well who tune in to hear our live broadcast stream at www.wamc.org.
In 1996, WAMC purchased an historic bank building and renovated it into a state-of-the-art, flexible performance space. We opened the doors of the The Linda with a commitment not only to live music, but to re-broadcasting our concerts to our entire listening area. A performance at The Linda offers an opportunity to perform in an intimate setting before a live audience, and also to be heard by thousands of devoted radio listeners. The venue has a 340 capacity and is generally set up for 175 seated and 125 standing. The venue serves beer and wine along with general concessions. All performances are recorded for later re-broadcast. The Linda is equipped with a state of the art audio system, professional lighting, video projection and a Yamaha baby grand piano.
