Local Hero: Linda Clark

Linda ClarkHats off to Linda Clark, an amazing musician and band leader! Linda has been playing for the Peterborough English Country Dancers in Peterborough Ontario for the past 15 or more years. Our house band has been playing for us on a volunteer basis for most of that time, and only recently have we been able to pay them an honorarium. Despite our early lack of funds, Linda has been a loyal band leader, scouting out other talented musicians, working with our house and guest callers, and managing our ever growing music library. In addition, Linda is also keeping traditional music alive through her leadership of two folk choirs, one in Peterborough and the other in nearby Lakefield.  Our monthly dances, and occasional other social events, would not happen without her. Thank you, Linda!!
