Sunday, March 18, 2018 - 3:00pm

Join us for an afternoon of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar Music "Skagit Valley Style"

Kamuela Kahoano

Kamuela's musical styles include solo ukulele, solo guitar, and looping across an array of genres, fusing Hawaiian, slack key, alternative rock, electronic dance and R&B.

Paul Togioka

Paul started playing music professionally on the Bluegrass Banjo and later crossed over to the Slack Key Guitar. Beginning in 1996, Paul has been a regular on the Hawaiian Slack key Guitar Festival Tours and also received the “Hawaiian Music Awards Best Recording by a Slack Key Artist for his CD entitled “Ohana ‘O Kauai Slack Key Instrumentals".

Dwight Kanae

A veteran of the Hawaiian music industry and scene. Dwight has been a professional musician for over 35 plus years. He has traveled the world several times playing the music of Hawaii and Slack Key Guitar.

Bobby Moderow

A product of the 1970’s, Bobby was the typical guy whose interest in music at the time consisted mainly of classic rock, Hawaiian music, and slack key guitar. His major influences came from such groups as Olomana, Makaha Sons, Raymond Kane, Ledward Kaapana, Hui Ohana, Dennis Pavao and other prominent Hawaiian artists of the era.

Stephen Inglis

Stephen Inglis is a versatile artist. He crosses genres, yet his music always radiates integrity. Born and raised in Honolulu, he plays Grammy nominated Hawaiian slack key guitar. 

David Gans

A David Gans “solo electric” performance is likely to consist of several elements: Country-blues-style fingerpicking; loop based improvisations created live in the moment; sweetly-sung ballands, original or borrowed and Grateful Dead songs reinterpreted to suit his voice and guitar.

Anela Lauren

Originally a classical pianist, Anela Lauren now enjoys adding the kaleidoscropic tones of the celtic harp to just about any type of music. Her first album, “Mele from the Harp,” celebrates the spirit of aloha by combining the harp with slack key guitar and cello

The Lincoln Theatre presents legendary singer, manager and record producer

Peter Asher

and guitarist 

Albert Lee

on Saturday, April 7 at 8:00pm

As one half of Peter & Gordon, Peter Asher's voice "literally soared through Carnegie Hall" (Fox News), while Albert Lee has been called "the ultimate virtuoso" by Eric Clapton. Influenced from their earliest days as musicians and performers by great American artists like Buddy Holly and The Everly Brothers, Peter Asher and Albert Lee bring those influences to the fore in their first series of shows together as an acoustic duo.

Theirs is a history of song, and these duo shows will reflect that history. From the Peter & Gordon catalog, Peter Asher and Albert Lee will harmonize on "World Without Love", "I Go To Pieces", and more. From Albert Lee's back pages, expect the Jimmy Webb penned title track from his new acoustic album, "The Highwayman", Glenn Campbell's "A Better Place", and the Jimmy Jones/Otis Blackwell classic "Handy Man". Inspirations to both artists such as the Everly Brothers provide "Crying in the Rain" and "Bye Bye Love", while from Buddy Holly comes "Well, All Right". As Peter & Albert tell us stories of the travels that brought them to so many of the intersections of music history, the two legends bring these timeless songs to life.

Glorious,” raved the New York Times when Joyce DiDonato sang the title role of Cendrillon at the Royal Opera in 2011. “Her performance was thoroughly enchanting.” Now, for the first time ever, Massenet’s sumptuous take on the Cinderella story comes to the Met, with DiDonato starring in the title role. She is paired with mezzo-soprano Alice Coote in the trouser role of Prince Charming, Kathleen Kim as the Fairy Godmother, and Stephanie Blythe as the imperious Madame de la Haltière.

The Lincoln Theatre presents

Paula Poundstone

on Saturday, April 28 at 8:00pm

Paula Poundstone is one of our country’s pre-eminent comedians. With smart, observational humor and a spontaneous interaction with a crowd that has become the stuff of legend, she swings on stage like a Jazz musician. Without a plan. Without a net. There's a disarming ease in her craft, an immediate sense that she's so quick on her feet you need never worry about the possibility of something going wrong.

Poundstone is the star of several HBO specials. Her razor sharp wit and impeccable timing makes for a perfect fit as a regular panelist on NPR’s #1 show, the weekly comedy news quiz, Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! Also an author, she just released her second book, The Totally Unscientific Study Of The Search For Human Happiness. Tony and Emmy Award-winner Lily Tomlin described the book as “A remarkable journey. I laughed. I cried. I got another cat.” The book landed at #1 on Amazon Best Sellers lists in Hardcover, Kindle, Audible and on the Billboard Top 10 Comedy Chart.

Paula is known for never doing the same show twice. When asked about Paula, Wait, Wait host Peter Sagal replied, "Paula Poundstone is the funniest human being I have ever known. Everything she does, thinks, or says is hilarious.” Audience members often leave her shows complaining that their cheeks hurt from laughter and wondering if the random people she talks to are plants. Of course they never are.

Paula is the winner of an American Comedy Award for Best Female Standup Comic and is ecognized on Comedy Central’s list of The 100 Best Standup Comics of All Time. She voiced the character “Forgetter Paula” in Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out, winner of the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. Her commentaries appear on CBS Sunday Morning and guest appearances include Late Night with Stephen Colbert, Carson Daly, Nerdist with Chris Hardwick. She is the first woman, in its then 73rd year, to share the dais with the President and perform standup comedy at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. She is included in innumerable lists, documentaries and literary compendiums noting influential standup comedians of our time.

A Tony Award®-winning musical classic by Stephen Sondheim & James Lapine

Into the Woods reacquaints us with the most enchanting Brother's Grimm folklore, and characters that we not only adored in our youth, but also continue to pass on to our children today. Joining Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel and, of course, Little Red Riding Hood, is a childless Baker and his Wife. Of course, no fairy story would be complete without a Witch!

These familiar tales are retold through a sophisticated, witty, and beguiling storyline with a musical score so dazzling, and full of dark comedic verse so clever, that many critics have hailed Into the Woods as "one of the few masterpieces of our time". Better still is that none of the important cautionary lessons about life's physical and moral hazards from the original Grimm's stories are lessened by this modern recounting of classic "happily ever after” fables. And that's only the first act!

These stories evolved from a desire to better navigate our way through the human experience, and they have retained their relevance because the human experience remains the same across time and culture. The characters in the "after happily ever after" of Into the Woods are much richer, and will touch you much more deeply than they ever have before, as they come to understand the true consequences of their wishes and the unforeseen complications that came with them. Holding true to tradition, Into the Woods will also leave you to reckon with its own moral of the story – which may not be the one you were expecting.

Leo Kottke

on Wednesday, July 25, 2018

Acoustic guitarist Leo Kottke was born in Athens, Georgia, but left town after a year and a half. Raised in 12 different states, he absorbed a variety of musical influences as a child, flirting with both violin and trombone, before abandoning Stravinsky for the guitar at age 11.

After adding a love for the country-blues of Mississippi John Hurt to the music of John Phillip Sousa and Preston Epps, Kottke joined the Navy underage, to be underwater, and eventually lost some hearing shooting at lightbulbs in the Atlantic while serving on the USS Halfbeak, a diesel submarine.

Kottke has been awarded two Grammy nominations; a Doctorate in Music Performance by the Peck School of Music at the U of Wisconsin, Milwaukee; and a Certificate of Significant Achievement in Not Playing the Trombone from the U of Texas at Brownsville with Texas Southmost College.
