Chances are – one of our favorite local artists, Linda Fayte, who has a vast repertoire of originals and covers.

"I really enjoy playing at the open mic," Linda told us. "The satisfaction for me comes from seeing the crowd listening and loving what I play."

Linda, who hails from Lake George, first heard about the open mic from friends. a few years back.  "I was immediately impressed. It's successful because of how Mark Piper (a talented musician and the organizer) handles the musicians".

Linda plays an eclectic mix of country, blue grass and some soft rock. Her influences are diverse -- from Neil Young, Norah Jones and Carole King.

"It's because of Carole King I started playing guitar, when I was 14."

And if you are lucky, you might also catch Linda doing a duet or two with the talented Tom Brady, who hails from Bolton Landing. Together, they make up the duo Hot Pursuit.
