Linda Ronstadt was born in Tucson, Arizona, and raised on the family’s 10-acre ranch with siblings Peter (who served as Tucson’s Chief of Police for ten years), Michael J. and Gretchen (Suzy). During a recording career spanning four decades, Linda Ronstadt covered much of America’s popular and folk music and appealed to a mass audience that, but for her, might never have heard the work of Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, or Elvis Costello, not to mention the older pop standards and traditional Mexican songs she sang later in her career. She grew up singing Hank Williams and Elvis Presley favorites with her siblings and Mexican folk songs with her father.
Tucson’s own Linda Ronstadt will be interviewed by longtime friend, Jeff Haskell. Jeff is the musical director of the Tucson Jazz Orchestra and former conductor of the “Linda Ronstadt sings the Great American Songbook” show with arrangements by Nelson Riddle.
