Linda McRae: A Valentine to 30A Concert
Seaside REP Theatre | 7:30pm | Tickets $25 at LoveTheREP.com
Since her 2015 Escape To Create Residency, singer songwriter Linda McRae has gained an international following as teacher and performer of unforgettable melodies and thought provoking lyrics. Originally from Canada and now of Nashville, McRae was the 2016 British Columbia Entertainment Hall of Fame Pioneer Inductee and was winner of the 2017 Boston Family Folk Chorale Songwriting Competition for her song, Be The Light. Performed a cappella in the dark at The REP Theatre in 2015, McRae was later invited to perform the song with a one hundred member choir and full orchestra as part of the BC Hall of Fame’s concert series. Performing on banjo, guitar and accordion, McRae’s skilled musicianship, deeply satisfying voice evocative of a mature Patsy Cline and refreshing acoustic style will once again be center-stage at The REP as Escape To Create’s annual “Valentine To 30A” concert. McRae’s teaching, an integral part of her career, has also expanded from international music festivals to her Express Yourself workshops with prison populations across North America. In addition to her creative goal of writing songs for her next album, McRae will conduct her Express Yourself workshop benefitting troubled students in county schools.
Escape to Create in Seaside Florida
Seaside’s Escape To Create (E2C) artist residency launches its 27th season with the arrival of a dozen artists selected from an international pool of applicants for the renowned creative retreat in Seaside, Florida. E2C artists are in residency this January and February as they escape to create their individual projects in the music, literary, visual, theater and performance arts. As a residency requirement, artists give a public performance as a contribution to the community. Often produced in partnership with The REP Theater in Seaside, their readings, screenings, lectures and performances bring outstanding cultural programs to the South Walton community.
Tickets to performances: lovetherep.com. Some community events are free.
Tickets for the Escape to Create performance series at The Seaside REP are available at www.lovetherep.com or via telephone at 850-231-0733. Ticket purchases support Escape to Create Residencies and Educational Outreach throughout Walton County.
Come out to enjoy the work of visiting artists from all over the world on stage here in SoWal. Experience the performances in the Seaside REP's intimate theater located in Seaside, Florida just behind Modica Market on Quincy Circle.
E2C artists in retreat are devoted to their individual projects in the music, literary, visual, theater and performance arts. During their stay as guests of our community, artists share their works with the public through contribution of performance at The REP Theatre, the Seaside Chapel and other iconic venues in Seaside. They also support teachers and serve as mentors to the Walton County student population through classroom visits and after school workshops.. They will live and work in Seaside cottages donated for their month-long creative projects and in support of their contributions to the larger community through educational outreach and performance. Read about this year's E2C artists online.
Escape to Create is a nationally recognized multidisciplinary artist residency hosted since 1993 by the Seaside community. E2C is a volunteer non-profit organization that represents the unique character of a community deeply invested in the arts. Residencies are made possible through the generosity of Seaside homeowners, merchants, and donors. For more information about Escape to Create, visit www.escape2create.org
To be in a place where the art, new generative ideas and critical thoughts are appreciated is a beacon of hope for all artists.
