CABARET FESTIVAL – Rock Venus – Banquet Room – 4K

By Peter Maddern

Linda Ronstadt is a name known to most who came of age in the 1970s, her music commercial, catchy and often intriguing. Jane Clifton takes us back to those days with a snappy, well scripted hour of memories with the age of her audience tightly defined by when the songs first released.

Embracing the songs of others without shame, from names such as Roy Orbison, the Eagles, Jackson Browne and J.D. Souther, Ronstadt kept punching them out and Clifton and her four piece band open with Different Drum, her first hit, and takes us through the likes of Blue Bayou, You’re no Good and When Will I Be Loved. It does not take much dreaming off to feel the legend is in the room with us so well does Clifton catch some of the most distinctive notes of Ronstadt’s voice.

This is an excellent show and if you are lover of the music one you could happily sit through 100 times.
