Ana Popovic

on Sunday, July 3rd at 7:30pm

The award-winning, hard-touring, guitar slinger blends smoking electric funk and slide guitar, jazzy instrumentals and a tight blues groove with soulful, feminine vocals. Add to the mix her incredible stage presence, all of which makes her an irresistible force in the world of contemporary blues music.

All throughout her youth, her father would invite friends over for nightly jam sessions. In this atmosphere, she quickly learned her father’s impressive blues and soul record collection, grabbed his guitar and started playing at the age of fifteen. Since then, Ana has developed into an phenomenal guitarist/vocalist with a growing legion of fans throughout the world.

Ana and her powerful band are tirelessly touring, playing major blues, jazz and rock festivals. She is endorsed by Fender, Ovation and DR strings. Ana has shared headlining stages with B.B.

The Historic Lincoln Theatre presents

Albert Lee 

with Special Guest

Kate Taylor

on Sunday, July 24th at 7:30pm

Albert Lee is “the guitar player’s guitar player,” universally recognized in music circles as one of the world’s finest, as well as one of the top rockabilly guitarists in history. Albert has not only worked with some of the biggest names in music, like Eric Clapton, Emmylou Harris and the Everly Brothers, but has also maintained a solo career of his own.

In his fifth decade as a professional musician, Lee is part of a rarefied fraternity as a virtuoso's virtuoso, respected on three continents and pretty much living out a professional life that most of his colleagues, when he started out, could only dream of.

"One of the finest guitar players who ever walked this earth…” - Vince Gill

Born in New England and raised in North Carolina, Kate Taylor shares her dual musical heritage with brothers James, Livingston, Hugh, and her late brother Alex. Her roots run deep in the soul, gospel and rockabilly sounds of her southern upbringing and in the literate folk, pop and Appalachian stylings that comprise the balance of her family's shared musical legacy.

In a recent show review, The Huffington Post said, "Her heart ignites a sea of beauty expressed in a myriad of harmony, rhythm and passion. Musically, she is seamless. She effortlessly and brilliantly flies through a wide swath of styles, from blues to country to ballad to gospel and beyond."

Advance Reserved Seating Tickets: $35 1st section; $30 2nd section; $25 3rd section; $20 4th section + applicable fees. Lincoln Theatre Members receive a $2 discount.

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.

July 14 – 16
Fields Spring State Park, Anatone Lapwai, ID (near Lewiston)

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.
