Acclaimed duo Freddy & Francine will treat music lovers to a fresh, new-year dose of Americana-Soul at the Lincoln City Cultural Center on Wednesday, Jan. 24.
This duo, with voices reminiscent of Aretha Franklin and Van Morrison, will fill the center’s auditorium their own blend of soul, R&B and folk.
Freddy & Francine most recently performed at the 2017 Telluride Bluegrass Festival as well as Rocky Mountain Folks Fest as main stage performers. They are recording a new EP in Nashville with producer Dan Knobler and plan to release it later this year.
The show will start at 7 pm at 540 NE Hwy. 101. Tickets, $15 in advance and $17 at the door, are available at lincolncityculturalcenter.org or by calling 541-994-9994. Tickets for those 18 and younger are $10 apiece.
Art lovers are invited to come early for a special pre-concert event in the center’s Chessman Gallery. Gallery director Krista Eddy will reveal the 12 exhibits that will grace the gallery in the year to come. Eddy will also present the chosen designer for the 2018 Chessman Gallery collectible shirts, and offer information about the Art on the Edge Studio Tour in May and the cultural center Members Show in July.
There will be refreshments, a new season brochure and the sale of raffle tickets for a chance to win a $500 piece of artwork from the recent “Chiaroscuro” mosaic show. The winner will be picked on Feb. 7.
