Last updated 5/30/2020 at 10:18am
Edmonds Center for the Arts has announced its 2020-2021 season, with highlights including Mary Wilson of the Supremes and Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, Elvin Bishop and Charlie Musselwhite, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Asleep at the Wheel.
"We have been striving as an organization to represent and celebrate the diversity of our community in all that we do, and I believe the 2020/21 season is a reflection of that commitment," said ECA director of programming Gillian Jones.
"Audiences will see the legendary artists they know and love, alongside genre-defying, rising stars from around the world. The common thread is that each of these artists brings joy, passion, and innovation to their craft. It's our hope that their stories inspire and challenge you to look at the world in a different way."
Restrictions may be in place
In a statement, ECA said: "The health and safety of our community, staff, volunteers, and artists continues to be our highest priority. As we look ahead to next season, we remain committed to providing a safe and secure environment for all ECA performances and events and will continue to comply with all government-mandated restrictions on social gatherings and distancing.
"We are grateful for your patience and flexibility as we navigate this unprecedented situation. We will make every effort to honor your seating requests, but please know that your seating location may need to change in order to meet distancing requirements. We will continually monitor guidelines and mandates from the governor and the CDC, and as soon as we are able to lift restrictions, you'll be the first to know.
"Additionally, rest assured that we are exploring all contingency options: alternative seating charts, live streaming of performances, adjusted show lengths, and more."
