Eder, Wildhorn reunite for Now


I talked to singer/actress Linda Eder a while back for a San Francisco Chronicle story pegging to her concerts this weekend (April 22 and 23) as part of the Rrazz Room Concert Series at the Marines Memorial Theatre. Read the story on SFGate.com.

The story focuses mainly on her reunion with ex-husband Frank Wildorn for her new album, Now.

There was only one question that didn’t make it into the final piece, and it has to do with Linda’s skills as a renovator.

Q: You’ve been doing some heavy-duty DIY work on your property.
A: There are two houses on our lot, and for the 1909 carriage house, we gutted it down to the beams. I’ve done some construction and building work before, but never to this extent. I really love working with wood. I had my brother here helping. It’s not as hard as you might think. We’re almost finished, with only moldings and detail things to finish. If you look at my hands, you can see I’ve really been doing the work. These are the hands of a laborer. They don’t make a lotion that can fix these hands.

Here’s Linda singing “What’s Never Been Done Before” from the new album. It’s a song from the Frank Wildhorn and Nan Knighton’s musical Camille Claudel.
