Noteworthy Friend: Linda Dunn

Linda Dunn

Linda Dunn originally designed this website and is a quirky, talented songwriter in her own right. She does not seem to be making public appearances these days but her two CDs, Linda Dunn & Second Sight are worth tracking down.  (I found the former on Amazon)
