Linda Fahey joined the Folk Alley team in 2005. Her love for folk and roots music started early on while growing up in the folk-drenched Boston area. Her passion for music continued while pursuing degrees in her two other loves – field botany and forest ecology. After teaching ecology and environmental science at a small private college in the Adirondacks of NYS and presenting/promoting folk and acoustic blues concerts in the Saranac Lake area for seven years, an unexpected twist of fate led to a job offer from Garrison Keillor to work for ‘A Prairie Home Companion’ as Associate Producer (aka talent booker.) She made the big move “down from the mountains” to the urban flatlands (and the relatively balmy climate) of St. Paul, Minnesota. While MN, Linda also worked for the Twin Cities-based folk label Red House Records. Today, when she’s not focused on all things folk and roots music, Linda loves her life in Saranac Lake, NY – hiking or snowshoeing with her husband and 2 dogs (Luna and Mowgli), paddling, and obsessively following the Boston Red Sox. Go Sox!
