Good Time, A Good Time - 1998

Linda Tillery carries out musical roots research, she collects songs and materials from Afro-American history. In 1993 she formed the Cultural Heritage Choir, which in the meantime has built up a veritable treasure trove of songs in the Afro-American tradition. Linda Tillery's women's choir sings songs about the "black experience": spirituals, work songs, blues numbers, field hollers, children's songs, folk songs, even pieces from South America and South Africa. The thematic thread through all of these is survival in the centuries of slavery and discrimination.
