Thornton Creek – 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug.8, in the Hazel Miller Plaza
Thornton Creek plays what they call "eclectic front porch swing." Named after a real creek in Seattle, the group has been playing together since 1996.
The group has a new alblum out titled “fancypants.”
The show begins at 5 p.m. in the Hazel Miller Plaza, located at 5th and Maple in downtown Edmonds.
The Hazel Miller Concerts are generously sponsored by the Hazel Miller Foundation.
New Age Flamenco – 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug.11, in City Park
New Age Flamenco was formed in 1998 by bass player Oleg Ruvinov.
In 1999, the band adopted the name "New Age Flamenco," playing popular tunes by Gipsy Kings, Carlos Santana, Armik and others.
Their music reflects a strong Latin connection, Mediterranean folk, European roots, jazz, and a Gypsy soul blended with the infectious rhythms of modern music.
New Age Flamenco personifies eclecticism by absorbing their influences and combining them to create a new, personal sound of their own.
The show begins at 3 p.m. in Edmonds City Park, located at 3rd and Pine in downtown Edmonds.
Bring the family, lawn chairs or blanket and join in for some music and family entertainment.
In the event of rain, the concert will be cancelled at 2:30 p.m.
The Concerts in City Park are sponsored by Lynnwood Honda and Acura of Lynnwood.
Concerts are presented by the Edmonds Arts Commission on behalf of the Edmonds City Council and are accessible to persons with disabilities.
