The Shoreline-LFP Arts Council brings more summer music for your listening, dancing and dining pleasure July 20 with a lively performance by Stickshift Annie with Kimball &the Fugitives at Cromwell Park.

Stickshift Annie with Kimball and the Fugitives features Kimball Conant on lead guitar and vocals, Larry Hill on bass vocals, Phil Bowden on drums, and Annie Eastwood on lead vocals and hand percussion. They perform everything from Freddie King shuffles, slow grinders, Texas 2-beat blues, to Latin, jazz, swing, rock &roll, and R &B blues. Stickshift Annie has opened for many nationally known blues artists such Tommy Castro and Smokin’ Joe Kubek.

Conant performs on his vintage Gretsch electric guitar in the distinctive finger style of Chet Atkins, and easily shifts to a deep down Johnny Winter style acoustic slide guitar for burning blues. Eastwood’s vocals combine elements of blues and jazz with a unique sultry, sensitive tone that she can shape to rock the house. Eastwood was nominated by the Washington Blues Society for Best Female Vocalist and her debut CD, “Out of Her Mind,” was nominated for Best Northwest Recording and has had airplay across Europe, Australia and the U.S.

Bring a picnic and your family and friends for this free concert from 7-8:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 20 on the Art’s Council’s Showmobile stage at Cromwell Park, located at Meridian Avenue N. at 182nd Street. The Arts Council will also be hosting Volunteer Recognition Night.
