About Linda Ronstadt Songbook performed by Bloom

In 2019 acclaimed singer/songwriter Bloom brings the music of Linda Ronstadt to life with an incredible band featuring some of Australia's most respected musicians in a concert tour of Australia and New Zealand. Constantly feeling she was born in the wrong generation, for Bloom, this tour is as personal as it gets. Bloom has a feverish connection with music from the decades of the 60's and 70's and has a strong urge to bring Linda Ronstadt and the music that is her legacy to future generations, embracing and reinvigorating Linda's rich musical history and the architecture she has left on the music industry. Expect to hear tracks that made up Ronstadt's 1979 tour set list including Blue Bayou, When Will I Be Loved, It's So Easy, When Something Is Wrong With My Baby, That'll Be The Day, Just One Look, Back In The USA and many more. 

It is widely known that Linda was forced to retire from singing in 2009 as a result of Parkinson's disease. Subsequently Bloom is lending her voice with this tour to help raise awareness of Parkinson's disease supporting the Shake It Up Australia Foundation who are partnered with The Michael J. Fox Foundation in their quest to fund research to find a cure. Bloom joins the likes of TV presenter Liz Cantor, TV personality Sally Obermeder and fellow artist Peter Byrne (Neil Diamond performer) as an official Shake It Up Ambassador and will utilise her shows to raise funds for the foundation. 

"I am very honoured to be an Ambassador for Shake It Up" says Bloom. "I not only to get to perform the songs of one of my all-time favourite artists, Linda Ronstadt, but at the same time raise funds and awareness for Parkinson's disease in the hope to find better treatments and ultimately a cure for Australian's and their families living with Parkinson's. 

Bloom has had heads turning and has been gaining International critical acclaim with her effortless soulful vocal resonance of power vocalists Adele and Amy Winehouse with her Adele and Amy Songbook Tour. She has been described as "one of Australia's finest vocalists"  and Six-Time Golden Guitar Award winning singer/songwriter Melinda Schneider describing her as "the next generation of amazing vocalists".

As Linda did to Australian audiences in 1979, come and be charmed by the Australian vocal powerhouse that is Bloom and celebrate all that is Linda Ronstadt.  

About Shake It Up Australia for Parkinson’s Research

Shake It Up Australia Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation established in 2011 and in partnership with The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) promotes and funds Parkinson’s disease research in Australia aimed at better treatments and ultimately a cure.

To date, the foundation together with our partners at The Michael J. Fox Foundation have co-funded over $6 Million into Australian Parkinson's research and are the largest non-government funders across multiple research institutes.

The foundation was established by Clyde Campbell, a father of three and business owner who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2009 at the age of 44. Clyde set out to find out as much as he could about the disease and determine what he could do in a practical sense to assist. His search led him to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research in the United States and the remarkable work they do to fund medical research targeted at finding better treatments on the path to a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
The partnership builds upon a strong base of promising Parkinson’s research in Australia and allows both organisations to maximise the impact of capital raised from the Australian Parkinson’s community to accelerate better treatments on the path to a cure. Under the partnership, all funds raised by Shake It Up  Australia Foundation and our supporters are directed toward research efforts in Australia.  We also guarantee that 100% of your donation is directed into research, this is made possible by our founding directors covering all overhead and administration costs of the foundation.

As the country’s leader in strategic Parkinson’s research funding we are excited about the talent we have in our Australian institutes and the prospect that their work will take us closer to a cure.
