JD Souther
Inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2013, JD Souther’s songs have taken up residence in our collective memories. He is as well-known for the songs he’s written for other people, as for his hit single “You’re Only Lonely” which dominated the airwaves in 1979. During the 70s and 80s, Souther wrote or co-wrote such familiar chart-topping hits as “Heartache Tonight” and “Best of My Love” for The Eagles, “Heart of the Matter” for Don Henley, and “Her Town Too” for James Taylor. His songwriting talents found a home with hitmakers in both country and rock, from Linda Ronstadt, Glenn Frey, and Jackson Browne, to George Strait, Trisha Yearwood and more. Continually creative and musically evolving, Souther has also released seven solo albums, including his most recent, “Tenderness,” filled with music as timeless and appealing as ever.

Back to School Celebration
The magical sound of steel drums will revitalize students and their parents in a free back-to-school event at the Bankhead Theater on August 11th. Held on the last Friday before the 2017-2018 school year begins for students in the Tri-Valley, the final celebration of the summer will feature a performance on the steel drums by Shawn Thwaites inside the Bankhead lobby.

A Trinidadian-American musician and educator from Washington D.C., Thwaites is an innovator in the music of the steel drum creating a distinct sound that intertwines jazz, hip-hop, funk, calypso, reggae and more. He has performed at the Kennedy Center and Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., as well as numerous other prestigious venues and is the founder of the Shawn Thwaites Rebel Quartet.

In addition to Thwaites’ performance, there will be other activities for children and stations with information about local educational programs. Free ice cream treats will be served. The back-to-school event is sponsored by Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center.

The Yeomen of the Guard
War hero Colonel Fairfax is to be executed based on false charges made by a villainous relative who stands to inherit his estate. Before his expected death, he marries Elsie, a street performer, who – as his widow – will inherit all and thus thwart the relative. The plot twists, however, when Fairfax, disguised as a Yeoman, is smuggled out of the Tower of London. Add to the mix Elsie’s performing partner who is in love with her, an incompetent jailer, and a crowd of bloodthirsty townsfolk, and we have a dark comedy of love and loss, secrets and lies, choices and consequences.
