JEFFERSON – Linda J. Hall, a native of Cooperstown who resided for many years in Jefferson, passed away in the late hours of Monday, January 31, 2022.
Born December 31, 1936, in Cooperstown, she was a daughter of Loren C. Lee, Sr. and Florence M. (Bresee) Lee.
Linda was passionate about a great many things, of course first and foremost her family.
She also really loved cars and always drove them way too fast. She had an uncanny knack while driving at full speed of spotting deer and squirrels at the side of the road before harm could come to them or her.
She loved all kinds of music, especially Rock and Roll, and always played it way too loud.
The Cooperstown Concert Series kicks off its 52nd season Saturday, November 6 at 8 p.m. at the Otesaga Resort Hotel with the Nashville-based band Roanoke.
Led by Taylor Dupuis (vocals) and Joey Beesley (guitar, vocals), Roanoke blends Americana, rock ‘n’ roll, and a variety of other musical influences with vocal harmonies.
Concert series Board President Jim Hill said Roanoke is rapidly gaining notoriety and came highly recommended. Board member Jeff Katz said their style is unique, blending a 70s rock sound with a modern Americana influence. According to the band’s website, music publication Literally Darling said Roanoke’s “… roots run deep with the heart of country music, the soul of the blues, and the grit of Americana music.”
