Rick Epting Foundation for the Arts & The Lincoln Theatre Present
with local opening act The Naughty Blokes
The award-winning, hard-touring, sexy guitar slinger blends smoking electric funk and slide guitar, jazzy instrumentals and a tight blues groove with soulful, feminine vocals. Add to the mix her incredible stage presence, all of which makes her an irresistible force in the world of contemporary blues music.
Ana, a Serbian who now lives in Memphis, was added to the 2014 -'16 all-star Experience Hendrix lineup as the only female guitar-player, a nationwide tour celebrating the music and legacy of Jimi Hendrix with Buddy Guy, Eric Johnson, Zakk Wylde, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and many more world renowned artists. She’s been nominated for five Blues Music Awards and has appeared on the cover of Vintage Guitar and Guitar Player magazines. Her albums 'Can You Stand The Heat' and ‘Unconditional' were Pick-Of-The-Week by USA Today and featured on NPR Music. Nearly all of Ana's albums made it the Top 5 of the Billboard Blues Charts and are being played regularly on US radio.
Ana and her powerful band are tirelessly touring playing major blues, jazz and rock festivals. She is endorsed by Fender, Ovation and DR strings. Ana has shared headlining stages with B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Joe Bonamassa, Gary Clark Jr., Jonny Lang and many others.
Advance festival seating tickets: $15 - $35 with $2 off for Lincoln Theatre and REFA members.
In 2006, friends of the late Rick Epting formed the Rick Epting Foundation for the Arts and continued his legacy of supporting the Arts in Skagit County with a showcase of local talent and humor. Our mission is to help raise money that is needed for Organizations, Scholarships, and other non-profit groups, to promote and encourage live performance shows and to provide ongoing support for local artists in the community.
Rick Epting was one of the founding members of both the Lincoln Theatre Center Foundation, the Skagit Performing Arts Council (SPAC), and appointed by the Governor to serve on the Washington State Arts Commission. He was also instrumental in the restoration campaign for the Lincoln Theatre and the planning and organization for McIntyre Hall in Mount Vernon. Rick was a proud supporter of Arts groups and organizations in Skagit County until his untimely death in August 2005.
