Since bursting onto the music scene in 1967, Linda Ronstadt has been an icon of the industry for more than 50 years. Her extraordinary vocal range and ambition created unforgettable songs across rock, pop, country, folk, and more, earning her 10 Grammy Awards, 11 platinum albums, and making her the first artist to top the pop, country, and R&B charts simultaneously. She was a pioneer for women in the male-dominated music industry and a passionate advocate for human rights.
'Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice' is the latest film by directing, writing, and producing team Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, whose previous ground-breaking films include 'The Times of Harvey Milk', The Celluloid Closet', and 'Lovelace'. With moving performance footage and appearances by friends and collaborators including Dolly Parton and Emmylou Harris, the movie celebrates an artist whose desire to share the music she loved made generations of fans fall in love with her - and the sound of her voice.
Director Rob Epstein will be in conversation with Sinéad Rushe, theatre director and Senior Lecturer in Acting and Movement, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
