Last updated 12/3/2020 at 10:58am
The pandemic has, of course, affected the Edmonds Center for the Arts, as its scheduled shows were forced to cancel due to in-person restrictions.
But the center is still promoting events.
All are online. Here are a few.
Darlene Love, "Love for the Holidays"
The livestream is 8-10 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5. Streaming from Sony Hall in New York.
Grammy Award winner and Rock and Roll hall of famer, Darlene Love has long been recognized as "one of the greatest singers of all-time" by Rolling Stone magazine.
Through the years, Love's voice launched dozens of hits, including "He's a Rebel," "(Today I Met) The Boy I'm Gonna Marry," "Marshmallow World" and her signature song, "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)."
Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy's Celtic Family Christmas – At Home
7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 19.
Champion fiddlers Natalie MacMaster, Donnell Leahy, and their seven children welcome viewers directly into their home to experience Christmas with them through a virtual performance.
Join their family as they invite you into their home for Celtic music and stories of raising their children, farming, food, and Christmas traditions.
Featureing Celtic music and stepdancing with the entire family. Musicians Mac Morin, piano; Mark Kelso, drums; Remi Arsenault, bass; and Elmer Ferrer, guitar, join in for a few numbers.
Kidstock! @Home with Ben Hunter and Joe Seamons
10:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 2.
Seattle songsters Ben Hunter and Joe Seamons give life to voices that have long been silenced in American culture.
Their award-winning performances are highlighted by storytelling that, rather than bringing the past to life, shows how the past still lives in the present. Through their songs, audiences witness current issues crop up again and again in folk songs, dance tunes, acoustic blues, and prison ballads.
The duo bounces from fiddle and banjo breakdowns to a cappella field hollers, early jazz, and gospel songs.
They won the International Blues Challenge in 2016 and recorded with National Heritage Fellow Phil Wiggins.
Ticket Holders will receive a livestream link via email 24 hours prior to the event.
Tickets: Free with registration.
