Linq (Diane Lincoln), Massachusetts-based singer/songwriter

Diane has always lived in Massachusetts and went into her family business. For Diane, her life has taken an interesting twist. At an age when many look forward to retirement, she is kicking it up, cranking it out, and defying stereotypes. In December 2002 she decided that it was time to start sharing her music with the public as Linq, and she hasn’t looked back. She released a single called “War Machine” in June 2003, and her first full length CD, “Journey”, was released in July 2004. Linq’s music twists and turns from folk/rock to classic rock, from love and loss, to political, and from serious to outright fun.

On November 30, 2004 Linq sold her pharmacy to be able to spend more time writing and recording. Her latest CD “Fast Moving Dream” (June 2006), resonates with life experience without resorting to trite and tired images.

Patty Larkin and Dolores Smith at Woman-Stirred


Patty Larkin, singer/songwriter
Patty Larkin grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She hales from a long line of Irish-American singers and tale-tellers. She learned at a young age to appreciate the beauty and magic of the arts. She began classical piano studies at age 7, and became swept up in the sounds of pop and folk in the 60’s, teaching herself the guitar and experimenting with songwriting. Patty Larkin has always prided herself in her creative approach to music. "I’ve always been a writer who enjoyed the solitude of the creative process." With WATCH THE SKY, Larkin has created a one of a kind release that she wrote, produced, engineered and edited. The result is a raw, intimate gorgeous sound that is all her own. The concept of combining acoustic instruments with modern technology has always intrigued Larkin, and she accomplishes this feat gracefully on SKY.

Dolores Smith, film producer.
Dolores is devoted to her creative work as a filmmaker. Her films are about people who need to be heard and events that need to be documented. Dolores is quick to champion friends and family when they need help. She is also passionately devoted to her cats! She laughs easily about the ridiculous vagaries of life. She can argue too, about politics, about art and movies. Sara, a work in progress, is a film celebrating a mid-life lesbian’s issues of growing older with humor and depth.

Please tune in at 4pm for Patty Larkin and 5pm for Dolores Smith.

Anais Mitchell
local singer and songwriter

Born on a Vermont sheep farm, the 25-year-old singer/songwriter, Ana├»s (ah-NAY-iss) Mitchell has been around the world. It’s no surprise that Mitchell’s Righteous Babe debut, The Brightness, is infused with the restless, worldly perspective of a real troubadour. Mitchell gives us a glimpse into the raw talent and infectious energy of today’s underground folkies, not to mention a handful of the places she’s been.
