Catch singer Nanci Griffith Friday in Edmonds

    Nanci Griffith will perform Friday at Edmonds Center for the Arts.

"The Queen of Rockabilly" is bringing her blend of folk and country to Edmonds.
Nanci Griffith will sing Friday night at Edmonds Center for the Arts.
Griffith's confessional songwriting style has led to lots of hits over the years -- and not all of them for the songwriter herself.
"Love at the Five and Dime" became a signature song for Kathy Mattea, and Suzy Boggus struck paydirt with Griffith's "Outbound Plane."
But for audiences in Edmonds, Griffith will deliver her original versions in her beautiful voice.
Griffith has been successful by producing a vast catalogue of more than 20 albums, including the Grammy winning "Other Voices, Other Rooms." In 1989, she contributed "The Wexford Carol" to the Chieftains' Grammy winning album, "A Chieftains Celebration," according to press material.
Griffith has performed with many artists, including the Chieftains, John Prine and Jimmy Buffet. She will be joined by the folk-rock group The Kennedys, the New York duo of Maura and Pete Kennedy who sing a Byrds-inspired selection of songs, according to press material.
Nanci Griffith performs at 7:30 Friday night at Edmonds Center for the Arts, 410 Fourth Avenue N., Edmonds.
Tickets are $30, $35, $40 and $15. Call 425-275-9595 or go to

"Dancing Queen: The Music of ABBA": You'll be able to join the Seattle Men's Chorus and relive those disco years with enough visions of bell bottoms, pleather and platforms to last you through the next decade.
And you'll get your fill of ABBA hits as well, like "Waterloo," "Fernando," "Take a Chance on Me" and, you know it, "Dancing Queen." Those are just the hits; there will be more from the ABBA discology that you may not be as familiar with but which will still have that distinct ABBA sound.
This all takes place when the Seattle Men's Chorus presents "The Dancing Queen" at McCaw Hall on Saturday and Sunday.
Joining the men's chorus will be actor and comedian Leslie Jordan, who will add his humor from his latest autobiographical play "Fruit Fly."
Jordan won an Emmy Award for his portrayal of Beverley Leslie on the television comedy "Will and Grace." He's also been seen in "Raising Hope," "Neighbors," "Desperate Housewives," "Boston Legal" and "Ugly Betty," according to his biography.
"Dancing Queen: The Music of ABBA" will be presented at 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at McCaw Hall, 321 Mercer St., Seattle.
Tickets are $48 to $68. Go to or call 206-388-1400.
