In light of the horrific events surrounding the earthquake this week in Haiti, the Lincoln Theatre has announced that net proceeds from Cambalache, the Northwest’s hottest live salsa band, will be donated to the William J. Clinton Foundation. Ticket prices have been dropped to $15 general admission, to allow as many community members as possible to come together and make an impact in the face of a world tragedy. To take part in this benefit, visit www.lincolntheatre.org or call 360-336-8955.
Kevin “Wa lee hub” Paul has lived all of his life in the Swinomish community. He graduated from La Conner High School in 1979, attended Skagit Valley College, and began carving in the Coast Salish tradition as a young man. Kevin’s father and an uncle were master carvers.
Kevin's work will be on display in the Lincoln Theatre Art Bar from January 9th 2010 through February 28th, 2010.
A reception for the artist will be held on Saturday, January 9th from 5:30 - 7:30
Happy New Year! As we enter 2010, you will notice some changes to the format of our Lincoln guide. Most notably, we have moved to a two-month printed schedule of events, and will begin booking our films on a week-to-week basis, as other theatres do. While I acknowledge this is quite a change from the past, I want to tell you how this benefits the organization and you, the patron:
"Christine Olsen paints because she loves to paint. She's inspired by the things around her. History, culture, colors. She works mainly in opaque watercolors, creating vibrant, colorful paintings. Christine has lived in the Skagit Valley for the past 15 years and loves it here."
In three short years singer/songwriter LeRoy Bell has built a reputation and a national fan base that eagerly awaits the release of his first full length CD, TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY. The sonic stratification of multiple guitars, strings, percussion and bass, provide the lushlayers and textures that allow Bells earthy, soulful voice to whisper and soar with emotion. The honesty of his voice and lyrics makes you feel as if each song is being sung directly to each listener.
