Fleetwood Macramé is quickly becoming the Bay Area's most exciting tribute band. What began as a simple exercise in fun has turned into an awe inspiring live experience complete with show stopping renditions of Fleetwood Mac's greatest hits. Audience participation is encouraged, and Bay Area crowds are coming in droves to sing along with Fleetwood Macramé. What's more, they sound so much like Fleetwood Mac, if you closed your eyes, you would think it was the real thing. Only it's better, because you are in the front row!
Linda Moody (aka Stevie Nicks), singer/guitarist of Fleetwood Macramé and Excuses For Skipping, also doubles as a neo-folk singer/songwriter under the name Sorceress Of The Sky in San Francisco, Ca. Her acoustic music has been likened to Joni Mitchell with vivid imagery, sweet falsetto vocals and dark guitar tunings. Her newest work, a full length album entitled "Angel Island Is On Fire" is set to be released this Spring with a tour to follow.
