To Whom It May Concern

A Live Monthly Show

THE MAGIC THAT IS NICO LUND!

Nico will read a letter Thursday February 15th 7pm at the New Prospect Theatre.

Always in awe of the ocean, dramatic movements of clouds and the inescapable humbling power of nature, her work is a meditation into the unpredictability and transience of the human experience. Her studio practice includes painting, print arts, poetry, prose & book arts, music & video production. In addition to new conceptual visual & music projects in the works, she has a forthcoming book of prose and illustration titled, Drawing Clouds, coming out in 2024 from Bored Wolves Publishing.

Originally from a coastal town in central California, she left her home state in 1992 to live in the Pacific Northwest. She briefly moved to Lexington, Kentucky in 2021 and then made her return to Bellingham, Washington in June 2023.

Since receiving her Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Visual Art from the University of Washington at the turn-of-the-century, she has been developing, showing and refining her multidisciplinary practice. When not deep into a creative project, she spends time lost in thought on nature walks with her dog, meets-up for coffee with her college-aged kid, play’s D&D and takes improv classes with her partner of many years.

ANDY BUNN SPECIAL GUEST MUSICIAN!

Andy Bunn joins the letter show Feb 15th. Andy is a songwriter living in Bellingham WA who writes character-focused songs.

Some of the stories in the songs stick mostly to the facts and some are tall tales. The characters in the stories feel real to him and that’s enough.

In addition to solo stuff, he plays bluegrass in the High Mountain String Band.

THE NOV 9TH SHOW WAS A HIT!

Gib Strange read an incredible letter to AI that people are still talking about. Interested? Head over to his website http://www.notesfromtheuncannyvalley.com and you can always listen to the podcast to hear it for yourself. We’ll announce the release of the episode soon. Bellow Wing provided an incredible live soundtrack that complemented the letters perfectly. Local actor Les Campbell was recruited to read the letter from the Whatcom Museum Archives, a letter written by Samuel B. Crockett about his adventures and travails journeying along the Oregon Trail in the 1840’s. John Kingsford-Smith’s grandfather was the Amelia Earhart of Australia, breaking records in the air. John read his Grandfather’s account of being shot down during the war. Evelyn Symes read her Uncle’s account of hunkering down in a foxhole during the Battle of Buldge in WWII. Harvey Schwartz read the encouraging poem he wrote to himself as he navigated University writing classes as a senior…citizen. Jose Chepe Anguiano read a letter written, but never sent, to an old flame and Jayne Entwistle, To Whom It May Concern’s producer, read a letter to Danny Trejo about their time working on a film together in New Mexico.

We introduced a new letter format at the November show; the communal letter. We set up a typewriter in the lobby of the New Prospect Theatre and invited folks to write a few lines. The result was…interesting, funny and sightly chaotic. We’ve decided to leave the typewriter with a brand new sheet of paper in it to see what can be created between now and the next show, DECEMBER 21st.

BELLOW WING TO PLAY THE NOV 9TH SHOW!

Fans describe her as a Dark Mary Poppins, a Punk-Rock Motivational Speaker and have compared her vocal strength to Florence Welch. She brings an honest intensity and a sense of humor to her music and performance. Blurring the line between theatrics and humility, Bellow Wing pulls out her darkness, tenderly dissects it and makes friends with it, allowing you to join her for the journey.

LES CAMPBELL READS A LETTER FROM THE WHATCOM MUSEUM ARCHIVES, THURS NOV 9TH!

Les Campbell claims Irish ancestry by way of his grandmother, who was the youngest of 22 children (no joke). He has appeared locally in productions with the Bellingham Theatre Guild, Bellingham Theatre Works, Sojourner Theatre Coopera!ve, and Chuckanut Radio Hour. His dog, a discerning reviewer, usually has her tongue stuck out.
