ECA is excited to announce Kidstock! @Home, a series of free, livestreamed performances throughout the 2020/21 Season. In this new virtual format, Kidstock! @Home will highlight local artists representing the beautiful tapestry of diverse cultures, traditions, and art forms we’re fortunate to have in the Pacific Northwest.
From November through May, ECA will stream 5 live performances of music, storytelling, dance and theatre for our youngest audiences and their families, and provide opportunities to interact and engage with artists in real time. Though ECA’s 9th year of Kidstock! must adapt, we are committed to providing the same access to diverse and dynamic arts experiences to Edmonds, our surrounding communities, and beyond.
KIDSTOCK! @HOME is made possible with generous support by the Hazel Miller Foundation, Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation, Edmonds Arts Commission, Edmonds Bookshop, and First Financial Northwest Bank.

RESCHEDULED: Kidstock! @Home with Ben Hunter & Joe Seamons
Feb 13, 2021 | Starts at 10:30 am
This event has been rescheduled to February 13, 2021
Seattle songsters Ben Hunter & Joe Seamons give life to voices that have long been silenced in American culture. Their award-winning performances are highlighted by story-telling that, rather than bringing the past to life, vividly shows how the past still lives in the present. Through their songs, audiences witness current issues crop up again and again in folk songs, dance tunes, acoustic blues, and prison ballads.
Ben & Joe bounce from fiddle & banjo breakdowns to a cappella field hollers, early jazz to gospel songs featuring Piedmont guitar style and rattlin’ bones. With the same versatility that won them the International Blues Challenge in 2016, and allowed them to record with National Heritage Fellow Phil Wiggins, the duo celebrates the ways Americans have triumphed over oppression through the vitality of their art. Audiences walk away from Ben & Joe’s concerts and workshops inspired to learn more of their own heritage, and engage more deeply with their communities.
Ticket Holders will receive a Livestream link via email 24 hours prior to the event.
KIDSTOCK! @HOME is made possible with generous support by the Hazel Miller Foundation, Nancy Bittner, Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation, Edmonds Arts Commission, Edmonds Diversity Commission, Edmonds Bookshop, and First Financial Northwest Bank.
