The New Old Time Chautauqua

Saturday, July 30th at 7:00pm

The New Old Time Chautauqua is one of our favorite returning shows, and this time America’s only traveling circuit Chautauqua, is joining forces with Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission for a 2016 summer tour of seven state parks and nearby communities.

Chautauquas were based on the idea that learning continued throughout life. The Chautauqua Movement began in 1874, bringing a mix of education and entertainment to communities throughout the nation. When a Chautauqua came to town, all normal activity stopped as citizens dedicated a week of their lives to learn, be entertained and join with their community.

Each Chautauqua takes place over several days, with events occurring one day in the nearby town and another day in the state park. Each Chautauqua includes entertaining and educational workshops in parks and towns, a community potluck in each state park, live music, speakers and a grand parade—community participation encouraged—through the town. Each Chautauqua comes to a close with a family-friendly finale featuring Broadway stars, a big band, aerialists, comedians, jugglers and more.

The Lincoln Theatre presents

Maria Muldaur

on Saturday, September 10th at 7:30pm

Ms. Muldaur is best known world-wide for her 1974 mega-hit Midnight at the Oasis, which received several Grammy nominations, and enshrined her forever in the hearts of Baby Boomers everywhere; but despite her considerable pop music success, her 52-year career could best be described a long and adventurous odyssey through the various forms of American Roots Music. During the folk revival of the early '60s, she began exploring and singing early Blues, Bluegrass and Appalachian “Old Timey” Music, beginning her recording career in 1963 with the Even Dozen Jug Band and shortly thereafter, joining the very popular Jim Kweskin Jug Band, touring and recording with them throughout the '60s.

In the 42 years since Midnight at the Oasis, Maria has toured extensively worldwide and has recorded 40 solo albums covering all kinds of American Roots Music, including Gospel, R&B, Jazz and Big Band (not to mention several award-winning children’s albums), before settling comfortably into her favorite idiom, the Blues, in recent years. Often joining forces with some of the top names in the business, Maria has recorded and produced on-average an album per year, several of which have been nominated for Grammy and other awards.

Tickets go on sale to Lincoln Theatre Members on Friday, July 22nd at noon. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, July 29th.

Advance Reserved Seating Tickets, $30 first section; $25 second section; $20 third section; $15 fourth section, with $2 off for Lincoln Theatre Members.

An Intimate Evening with

Bebel Gilberto

Wednesday, September 28th 7:30pm

Bebel Gilberto has taken on traditional bossa nova rhythms and infused it with her trademark alluring vocals to create a hypnotic new sound.” – NPR

“Atmosphere is everything to this music, and it’s an atmosphere that creates a cozy realm between the retro and the fashionable, and between Brazil and international clubland.” – New York Times

World-renowned singer-songwriter Bebel Gilberto, who has earned multiple Grammy nominations over the course of her career, has captivated fans and earned media acclaim worldwide with her trademark electronic bossa nova, taking over clubs around the world and positioning Bebel as one of the top-selling Brazilian artists in the U.S. since the ‘60s. Gilberto’s penchant for sonically transporting listeners to Brazil, with bright, incandescent bossa nova-infused melodies, lyrics about love, and a lilting performance style has earned her raves for her live performances.

Gilberto was born in New York City, New York, to Brazilian parents, bossa nova pioneer João Gilberto and singer Miúcha, who were briefly living in the city at the time of her birth. She often traveled with her father when he recorded albums in different countries; she lived in Mexico at age three and moved to Rio de Janeiro at age five. Her musical education was her childhood in Brazil and has been performing since her youth in Rio de Janeiro. She was surrounded by extended family including her uncle Chico Buarque and family friends like Milton Nacimento, Tom Jobim, Caetano Veloso, and João Donato; she made her first recording at age 7. “I will turn 50 this year, so I’ve been recording and performing music for 47 years!” exclaims Bebel with a laugh.

Bebel’s influences are vast and eclectic. In addition to living and breathing all types of Brazilian musical styles as a child, she was exposed to the greats, from Debussy to Prince; Michel Legrand to Billie Holliday; Bjork to Gershwin. She also has a strong love for North American soul; she discovered Donna Summer, Earth Wind and Fire, and Michael Jackson on the dance floor as a budding teenager. “The whole disco thing plays a big role in my heart,” says Bebel, who still loves to dance.

Several years after Bebel moved to New York City in 1991 her present day sound of electronic meets Brazilian began to crystallize. “Little by little, I learned what I wanted musically,” says Bebel, who gigged all around the city and collaborated with many artists. “I think there I became a New Yorker—with a Brazilian heart of course!

Advance Reserved Seating Tickets, $35 first section; $30 second section; $25 third section; $20 fourth section, go on sale Friday, May 27th to Lincoln Theatre Members and Friday, June 3rd to the general public.

The Lincoln Theatre and the Rick Epting
Foundation for the Arts present an evening with

Paula Cole

on Thursday, October 20th at 7:30pm

“An extraordinary songwriter with a gorgeous voice” – Rolling Stone

“… a feisty poet with a soaring voice and a funky groove.” – Entertainment Weekly

“Paula is an original voice both in what she is saying and how she is saying it.” – Peter Gabriel.

Grammy winner and 8 time Grammy nominee Paula Cole has released six solo albums spanning an eighteen year career.

Paula has sold approximately three million albums and has performed with icons in many genres of music from Peter Gabriel to Dolly Parton (and many more.) Cole’s emotionally deep and thrilling performances are a trademark. Poetic and fiercely touching, intelligent writing makes Cole stand apart. Her compositions have been covered by Herbie Hancock, Annie Lennox, Katherine McPhee to name a few.

From a small town in Massachusetts Paula Cole was raised in a musical family with whom she and her daughter remain close. Cole is a scholarship alumna from Berklee College of Music with a background in jazz, received her first record deal with a jazz label (which she declined), and has collaborated with many jazz artists. Paula teaches and gives clinics in a spirit of giving back to the circle of music. With a loving allegiance to her fans, she maintains loyal communication online and after her live shows.

As the first woman in history to solely produce and receive the best Producer Grammy nomination for her work, This Fire, Cole has broken boundaries with a searcher’s spirit. From her top ten hits of the 1990’s to her more recent critically acclaimed albums, Paula Cole continues to write, produce, record and perform heartfelt, meaningful, lasting music that defies categorization.

Advance Reserved Seating Tickets: $40 first section; $35 second section; $30 third section; $20 fourth section, plus applicable fees.. Lincoln Theatre and REFA members receive $2 off.


Tickets go on sale Friday, July 1st to Lincoln Theatre and REFA Members and Friday, July 8th to the general public.

A CELEBRATION OF OUR ENVIRONMENT!

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival

returns to the Lincoln Theatre on Saturday, October 22nd at 7:30pm (reception at 6:30pm)

The Skagit Fisheries Enhancement Group (SFEG) is excited to bring the Wild & Scenic Film Festival back to the Historic Lincoln Theater for one night only on Saturday, October 22nd. This evening of short films will kick off with a reception starting at 6:30 pm in the Lincoln’s Art Bar followed by the film showing at 7:30 pm.

The Film Festival will feature short films that will delight the senses, inform our minds and help us appreciate nature and the struggles to protect it. Films were selected from a collection of over 100 films shown at the annual film festival held in Nevada City, CA. The films capture the spirit of varying environmental movements across the globe and the relationship that they have to humanity and that humanity has to them. The Wild & Scenic Film Festival works with environmental groups across the globe to host On Tour events as a way to outreach into different communities and bring together a diverse audience. SFEG is thrilled to be selected as a host organization for this amazing film event for the second year in a row and hopes the Film Festival will inspire a greater connection with our own Wild and Scenic Skagit River, as well as providing an evening of engaging fun.

SFEG is a nonprofit organization dedicated to engaging the community in restoring wild salmon populations for future generations. Salmon habitat enhancement is accomplished through habitat restoration, monitoring, and a wide variety of community outreach and education programs. SFEG offers free educational programs to over 1,500 students each year. These opportunities get students out of their classrooms and learning hands-on real science and watershed exploration which otherwise would not be available and affordable to local schools. Funds raised will go towards supporting these important education programs. They will also enable the program to continue to be offered free of charge to local schools.

EVENT DETAILS:

Date and Time: October 22, 2016 Doors open at 6:30 pm and show starts at 7:30pm.

Ticket Prices: $15 or $25 (includes a discounted SFEG membership and free Klean Kanteen giveaway) plus applicable fees . All tickets include a free raffle ticket.

Tickets can be purchased at the door, prior to the show at the Lincoln Theatre box office or at www.lincolntheatre.org and 360-336-8955. The box office is open Monday through Friday 12 pm to 5 pm.
