For those who missed the Topanga Folk Fest Sunday, 10/26, you really missed out on just why Topanga Canyon is such a wonderful place for real, live Folk Music! Playing there last night just reminded me of how wonderful this canyon is with all the artists who live and work there- many fantastic songs and great pieces of art and photography from here have worked their way into Los Angeles and beyond! The canyon isn't stuffy or overly pretentious and everyone with love in their heart and a curios nature are welcome to explore and join in on all the things that make Topanga Canyon, Topanga Canyon! It is a great place to go just to feel welcome somewhere for a change! Many thanks to Amit Galad and his crew for putting this on, Thanks go to My wonderful crew of fantastic musicians, Emilia, and Laurel Stearns Dillatante who without them, none of this could have been done without major stumbles on my part! So, remember, the next time you hear of the Topanga Folk Fest, do come out and see the REAL Topanga Canyon as I remember it! You won't regret it!
I apologize deeply to all of you for having to cancel the European Tour, but in mid May, 2014, I took a bad fall which resulted in a return of some of the neck problems I had prior to my neck surgery in 2007. This surgery was to protect my neck and the movement of my arms, etc by placing a titanium implant for neck support, donor bone and fusions. It is a surgery designed primarily for athletes, especially football players. It is a reparative surgery to prevent injury to the spinal column and nerves down the back etc. I immediately went to the emergency room at Kaiser Hospital where they took head and neck MRI’s and blood samples, etc and they have referred me to the specialist that takes care of these things at Kaiser. Once again I apologize to all of you, but singing as well as the movement to my arms is involved here and is the reason I had to cancel any extensive travel at this time and review all of this with my physicians.
Send lots of prayers, I will miss you all!
April 29 is a very special day! It is the re-release of Linda Perhcas' first album, Parallelograms via Anthology Recordings. Anthology Recordings became the world's first digital label to focus exclusively on introducing hundreds of out-of-print albums from the back pages of music history to the MP3 marketplace. After a three-year hiatus Anthology has now expanded its mission as a physical reissue label, providing high-quality vinyl, CDs and digital downloads with the same curatorial focus and artist input that has fueled the imprint from day one, across any genre of music worth rediscovering.
Linda Perhacs' psych-folk opus Parallelograms, gentile as it is profound has enjoyed a perennial resurgence since it surfaced on collectors’ radars in the ‘90s. A beautiful stranger’s mind on a breezy summer’s day is framed by full arrangements and lucid vocal delivery. Anthology will release the definitive edition of Parallelograms, mastered from the original tapes, with a bonus LP of demos and interviews on April 29.
Pre-Order Parallelograms here!
Thank you all!
Yesterday was also the launch of Linda Perhacs' new video, Prisms of Glass directed by the amazing Jessica Hundley.

The wait is over.
Linda Perhacs’ second album, The Soul of All Natural Things, is out today, over four decades after the release of her cult debut. Coaxed back into the studio the generations of fans that rediscovered her first disc, Parallelograms, she has created a sophomore album that once again summons that LP’s youthful spirit, without compromising its forward-looking experimental streak.
The Soul of All Natural Things was released today via Asthmatic Kitty. There you can purchase a copy on vinyl or CD, as well as on Amazon. Of course, you can also download the album now on iTunes & Amazon. Thank you!
If you will be in the Los Angeles area on Sunday, March 9 please come to Amoeba Music to see Linda Perhacs play a free show at 5:00 pm!
