Magical Strings announces the 41st Annual

Celtic Yuletide 

Sunday, December 15, 2019 - 3:00pm

For many in the Northwest, it wouldn’t be the holidays without the harps, dulcimers, and energetic Celtic sounds of acclaimed family ensemble Magical Strings. The tradition continues this year, as Magical Strings announces its 41st triumphant year of annual Celtic Yuletide Concerts taking place throughout Puget Sound in December 2019! Surprises lie in wait…

Enter the timeless realm of Celtic Yuletide! Three generations of the Boulding family set the stage ablaze with the Tara Academy Irish Dancers, lively fiddling of Jocelyn Pettit (award-winning Canadian artist who will have recently returned from a European tour and studies in Scotland), soulful songs with brilliant Dublin guitarist Colm MacCarthaigh, powerful vocals and singalongs led by Prescott Breeden, and dynamic percussionist Matt Jerrell. Philip and Pam’s Celtic harp and hammered dulcimer sing mysteries from their most recent sojourns in Ireland, augmented by cello, violin, whistles, accordion and concertina. This festive gala of music, dance, storytelling, juggling, a colorful costumed processional and songs of the season brings warmth and joy into the heart of winter.

“…each year it just becomes more magical!”

“…haven’t missed a show in 30 years!”

“Our favorite Christmas tradition!!”

National Theatre Live:

Present Laughter
by Noël Coward

Sunday, Dec 29, 1:00 pm

Matthew Warchus directs Andrew Scott (BBC’s Sherlock, Fleabag) in Noël Coward’s provocative comedy Present Laughter.

As he prepares to embark on an overseas tour, star actor Garry Essendine’s colourful life is in danger of spiralling out of control. Engulfed by an escalating identity crisis as his many and various relationships compete for his attention, Garry’s few remaining days at home are a chaotic whirlwind of love, sex, panic and soul-searching.

Captured live from The Old Vic in London, Present Laughter is a giddy and surprisingly modern reflection on fame, desire and loneliness.

Ring in the Roaring '20s with the Blind Boys of Alabama on NYE at the Lincoln Theatre!

The Blind Boys of Alabama are touring this Holiday Season and we are excited to welcome them back for their last performance of the year!The Blind Boys of Alabama have the rare distinction of being recognized around the world as both living legends and modern-day innovators. They are not just gospel singers borrowing from old traditions; the group helped to define those traditions in 20th century and almost single-handedly created a new gospel sound for the 21st. Since the original members first sang together as kids at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind in the late 1930s (including Jimmy Carter, who leads the group today), the band has persevered through seven decades to become one of the most recognized and decorated roots music groups in the world.

The Blind Boys' live shows are roof-raising musical events that appeal to audiences of all cultures, as evidenced by an international itinerary that has taken them to virtually every continent. The Blind Boys of Alabama have attained the highest levels of achievement in a career that spans over 75 years and shows no signs of diminishing.

The Lincoln Theatre presents

Eric Johnson Classics: Present and Past

Thursday, January 9, 2020 - 7:30pm

Eric Johnson has been traveling on a prolific odyssey over the course of more than four decades. Along the way, his creations have encompassed repertoire that cross pollinate genres which include rock, blues, jazz, fusion, soul, folk, new-age, classical and even country. Inevitably E.J. says it best himself in sharing. “It really boils down to the music and the song at the end of the day,” he explains. “If it doesn’t have that it gets boring for me. The most important thing for me is to grow musically and make a more expansive and meaningful artistic statement with every new project.”

As another decade turns, the guitarist, vocalist, composer, and multi-instrumentalist will release a new studio offering titled EJ Vol II. This album follows its predecessor from 2016 which was simply EJ, an all-acoustic collection of songs which showcased nine original compositions and four covers. His approach was deeply honest, intimate, personal and delivered with organic emotion. The touring which followed presented the rare opportunity for fans to enjoy the artist’s performances on both guitar and piano. With EJ Vol II, Johnson presents new repertoire that combines electric and acoustic arrangements. 

Among Johnson's many accolades are a Grammy award for "Cliffs Of Dover" (a track from his Platinum certified Ah Via Musicom), lifetime induction into the Guitar Player Gallery of Greats, his listing among the "100 Greatest Guitarists of the 20th Century" by Musician. In his hometown of Austin TX, a city full of guitarists the readers of the Austin Chronicle have voted Johnson the city's "Best Electric Guitarist" and "Best Acoustic Guitarist" in their yearly poll year after year. They also named him "Electric Guitarist of the Decade" and one of the top five "Musicians of the Decade".

The Mount Vernon native turned successful comic, author and ebullient TV personality will debut a show based on his new book, “Name Drop,” Saturday, January 11 at the Lincoln Theatre.

Mathews returns to his hometown for a stage presentation of his one-man show and more importantly to honor his mom, Gaye Mathews, and her health journey.

Having the event at the historic Lincoln Theatre is important to Mathews, as that was the place where he watched movies as a teen and was onstage looking out at a theater full of people, which will be the case again in January.

“This is a full circle moment as I turn 40,” he said. “My life is good.”

Keola Beamer & Jeff Peterson

Thursday, January 16 at 7:30pm

Two Virtuosos of Slack Key Guitar presented by Northwest Hawai'i 'Ohana and the Lincoln Theatre

Keola Beamer is the Andres Segovia of the slack key guitar.” – Long Beach Press Telegram

“[Jeff Peterson’s] manner is impeccable, his style exquisite”… “Brilliant” -Honolulu Advertiser

One is a Hawaiian legend who has stretched the boundaries of slack key guitar music while remaining true to the soul of its deeply Hawaiian roots.

The other is a rising star of the next generation of slack key players, who uses the style’s open tunings to explore multiple genres with ease and flair.

Together, they present an evening of superb guitar that explores the beauty of Hawaiian music as it reflects its native land, the range of Hawai‘i’s many cultural influences, and the complexity of technique that has shaped the distinctively resonant sounds of Hawai‘i.

Both Keola & Jeff are featured on the soundtrack of the film The Descendants, starring George Clooney.

They are joined by lovely dancer Moanalani Beamer, who brings hula and Hawaiian chants to the stage, and adds musical texture with ancient Hawaiian instruments.

The open tunings of Hawaiian slack key guitar give these guitar masters the incredible ability to play almost any kind of music, with a many-layered sound that belies the fact that each is playing only one instrument.

Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives: Marty Stuart is The Pilgrim

Wednesday, April 15, 2020 - 7:30pm

The Historic Lincoln Theatre welcomes country music torchbearer Marty Stuart as he celebrates the twentieth anniversary of his iconic album The Pilgrim.  While he’s too gracious to admit it himself, the GRAMMY Award-winning singer, songwriter, and musician is living, breathing country music history. Join Marty Stuart as he shares through story and song his remarkable life.

With legends like George Jones, Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard all passed on, country music purists often echo the question Jones himself asked: “Who’s going to fill their shoes?” The answer, in part, is Marty Stuart.

While he’s too gracious to admit it himself, the Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and musician is living, breathing country-music history. He’s played alongside the masters, from Cash to Lester Flatt, who discovered him; been a worldwide ambassador for Nashville, Bakersfield and points in between; and safeguarded country’s most valuable traditions and physical artifacts. Including its literal shoes: Stuart counts the brogan of Carter Family patriarch A.P. Carter and an assortment of Cash’s black boots among his vast collection of memorabilia.

But most importantly, Stuart continues to record and release keenly relevant music, records that honor country’s rich legacy while advancing it into the future. Way Out West, his 18th studio album, hits both of those marks. Produced by Mike Campbell (of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers), the album is a cinematic tour-de-force, an exhilarating musical journey through the California desert that solidifies Stuart as a truly visionary artist.
