Five Time Grammy Winner

Robert Cray

returns to the Lincoln on Sunday, October 17 at 7:30pm

The Lincoln Theatre is thrilled to welcome back Robert Cray after our 20 month COVID intermission.

Robert Cray has been bridging the lines between blues, soul and R&B for the past four decades, with five grammy wins and over 20 acclaimed albums! “In the early days of the band we were paying attention to my favorite blues players; Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, Albert King and especially Albert Collins,” Cray says.

With the 1986 release of Strong Persuader the Robert Cray Band’s tunes were put in heavy rotation on mega rock stations across the nation. The first hit, “Smoking Gun,” was followed by “I Guess I Showed Her” & “Right Next Door (Because Of Me).”

Following the path of fame taken by blues-based rockers like Johnny Winter & Stevie Ray Vaughan, Cray became a sensation, leading his band in concerts at large arenas and rock festivals.

Eric Clapton’s admiration for Cray led to a writing collaboration on the hit “Old Love,” which featured Cray on guitar. Cray performs “Brown Eyed Handsome Man” with Chuck Berry in the film “Hail! Hail! Rock ‘N’ Roll.”

During the 90s the Robert Cray Band was featured in concert with artists like Eric Clapton, the Rolling Stones, John Lee Hooker, BB King and Bonnie Raitt, who declared that the band leader (Cray) is “an original; he’s passionate, he’s a bad ass and puts on one of the best shows you’ll ever see.”

Burnin' in Mount Vernon - Burnin' is Back!

with

Eric Heatherly and the Chris Eger Band

returns to The Historic Lincoln Theatre on

Saturday, November 20, 7:30 pm

Two guitarslingers duel it out in a sequel to what was called by many as one of the best nights pre-COVID! Dubbed "Burnin' in Mount Vernon," this show promises to be bigger, better and once again a night long remembered. New songs, raffle giveaways and of course a show like only these guys can give!

A native of Chattanooga, Tennessee, Eric had paid his dues playing nightly for meager tips at Tootsie's Orchid Lounge on Broadway in Nashville. Shania Twain was sufficiently impressed with his chops to hire Heatherly to play lead guitar for her first world tour and to appear with her on the 1997 Country Music Association awards show. His years of dedicated effort were rewarded with a major label deal with Mercury Records that included a cover of The Statler Brothers' "Flowers on the Wall", the first of three singles from his debut album Swimming in Champagne, His take on country with a surf-rock feel found its way to radio and TV, showing up on CMT, “Austin City Limits,” and “Grey's Anatomy.” Other laurels include receiving Music Row Magazine’s "Critic's Pick" award and being named in Playgirl Magazine as “sexiest singer.”

CEB is led by guitarist/vocalist Chris Eger, whose funky, blues guitar work and powerful tenor vocals are sure to excite. Eger is backed by bassist and father Randall Eger, who has over 35 years of live performance experience. Drummer, Mark Clark, is a veteran of the Northwest music scene, playing with the likes of the New Deal Rhythm Band and the Chryslers. Clark brings a solid, funky foundation to the group. Rick Jiles, keyboardist and leader of the local favorites "Midlife Crisis & the Alimony Horns," is a tasteful and scintillating addition to the rhythm section. Finally, Pete Kirkman and Mike West lend their talents as the noteworthy and eponymous Powerhouse Horns.

The evening will include The Record Store Troubadours; Special set by Eric and Lindsey Heatherly. Newly married and on the road with their new project the Record Store Troubadours.

Tin Hut Concerts and the Lincoln Theatre present

Good Lovelies

THIS SHOW HAS BEEN RESCEDULED TO JANUARY 22, 2022 AT 8;00PM. ALL TICKETS TO THE 2021 PERFORMANCE WILL BE HONORED. 

You hear it a lot – the idea that something is greater than the sum of its parts – and yet there’s really no better way to describe the musical essence of the Good Lovelies.

Kerri Ough, Sue Passmore, and Caroline Brooks are immensely talented vocalists and songwriters in their own right; however, it’s their voices interwoven in harmony – powerful and pure, organic and inspiring – that elevates the Good Lovelies from impressive to peerless.

Over the course of their decade-plus career, they’ve covered plenty of stylistic ground, adding tinges of pop, roots, jazz, and even hip-hop to their country folk core.

If what happens next goes according to plan, the Good Lovelies will see their profile propelled to new heights thanks to a contemplative creative approach and a new spin on the signature sound that’s earned them audiences and accolades the world over.

Carsie Blanton

Friday, Feb 25, 7:30 pm

Carsie Blanton writes anthems for a world worth saving. Inspired by artists including Nina Simone and Randy Newman, her songs encompass a wide range of genres, from sultry pop to punk-tinged Americana. Whether alone with her electric guitar or fronting her “handsome band,” Carsie delivers every song with an equal dose of moxie and mischief, bringing her audience together in joyful celebration of everything worth fighting for.

Of 2019's "Buck Up":

“Buck Up” is a “rallying cry,” says Blanton. “Enough with the sadness and wallowing about America. We have to get people together to make change, even though it’s daunting.” Paraphrasing Tom Waits, she quips, “I hope this album will help to improve the quality of our suffering.”

"I was completely won over by the album full of tough-minded songs written and performed by Carsie Blanton on Buck Up, which I have no doubt is the most underrated album of this year." – Ken Tucker, Fresh Air, Top 10 Albums of 2019 (Dec 2019)

Of 2021's "Love & Rage":

"Love & Rage is a reminder that the fight for racial and gender equity can — and should — have joyous moments" - NOLA

"[Love & Rage is a] masterpiece and one of the best albums this year" - The Honey Pops

“Carsie Blanton is one of those hardheaded, open hearted protesters that makes revolution sound desirable to your body even if your mind wants to resist it.” - Fresh Air

Many of the original cast members have followed, including tenor Allan Clayton in the title role.
