Participate in local arts & culture LIVE from your living room

The LCCC is presenting a regular dose of live entertainment created by a member of the LCCC Family—musicians, artists, poets, volunteers, exercise instructors, club leaders and everyone in between.

Since the series began on March 26, the CQ Studio series has presented concerts by fiddler Kevin Burke, and the brew-making duo Matt & Amy White, as well as a foray into augmented reality poetry by Ger Killean and a live concert from Ecuador featuring Oregon Coast favorites Familia Chayag. Upcoming sessions will feature piano and vocals by Halie Loren (May 2), jazz by Ben Rosenblum and studio tours of some of the coast’s most interesting artists.

The full schedule can be found in the Live section of the FB Page.

Happy Birthday, Yaki! A Musical Tapas Celebration

The 2020 Siletz Bay Music Festival was to have been a season of anniversaries and celebrations. Sigh. But we've fund an occasion we can celebrate together: Yaki's 75th Birthday. On Saturday, May 30, Siletz Bay Music Festival and Lincoln City Cultural Center are presenting A Virtual Musical Tapas Birthday Celebration to honor the festival's fearless and beloved artistic director. YOU are invited to the party!The SBMF's annual Tapas concert, normally presented at Eden Hall, is like a living room cabaret. Sitting at small tables, attendees see world-class musicians perform unusual or quirky selections on a cozy set with a rug, a sofa and some picture frames. For this virtual Tapas event, musicians from throughout the 10-year history of the festival will be dropping by the Zoom living room to share a song, a laugh, some wine and a toast. After these weeks in isolation, they are no doubt looking forward to a live audience.There are two ways to enjoy this Zoom event. To join the celebration as one of a limited number of virtual guests, send an email request to info@siletzbaymusic.org. They'll send you the official Zoom login and instructions on how to participate. You'll need to do that prior to the start time: 3 pm on Saturday, May 30. If you'd rather enjoy the concert as an observer, tune to the LCCC Facebook Page "Live" Section starting at 3 pm. The celebration will be recorded, and available for later viewing on that page, as well as on the center's website.Of course, these delicious programs are made possible through the generosity of arts lovers like you.

Brady Goss

Brady Goss

Movin’ and Groovin’

Raised in the northeast corner of Oregon in the sparsely populated town of Wallowa, Brady Goss has been honing his craft since the age of four when he would reach high above his head to put his tiny fingers on the keys of his dad’s piano. He absorbed his father’s passion for piano music, especially that of rock n’ roll icon Jerry Lee Lewis. As he grew he began to truly study, learn and play the music of such greats as The Eagles, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Clapton and Hank Williams. Today, Brady’s energetic and engaging shows rock their way through festivals, state and county fairs, casinos, wineries, concerts in the park, as well as nightclubs, across the West. To date he has released four albums, and has an all-original album in the works. Brady has played the LCCC three times, and is a local favorite. We asked him what he had planned for today’s CQ Studio concert, and he said, “The usuaI. I pretty much fly without a set list and play whatever I am feeling in the moment. I love to play old rock n’ roll cover songs with a driving boogie woogie piano style, but I also love to play power ballads and old country, too. I’ll slip in some original songs as well.” This concert was recorded on FB Live on May 16, 2020.
