Women’s History Month Film Festival

Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture and society and has been observed annually in the month of March in the United States since 1987.

Arthouse Cinema at LBCAC welcomes you to join in the celebration with a film series shining a bright light on remarkable women. Each film will include an introduction and a short discussion follow screening.

Wednesday, March 27, 6:30 p.m.

She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry

This powerful documentary resurrects the early history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern women’s movement from 1966-1971. In the voices and footage of the women who lived it, the film provides a provocative, rousing and sometimes humorous account of the many breakthrough moments serving as the foundation for the 20th century liberation movement. If you were there, you’ll delight in the memory, and if you weren’t, there are important lessons to be learned.

*The film will be followed by a brief discussion.

Beth’s Tuesdays, Joel Rafael and Jim Quealy

Activist writer/singer Joel Rafael has released a stunning collection of Americana albums, including a two-volume set of Woody Guthrie songs, with five Guthrie/Rafael co-writes. His latest work, ROSE AVENUE, San Diego Music Awards Best Country/Americana Album Nominee, is a 10-song masterpiece that gracefully defines Rafael’s contribution to the American canon.

Mark Hummel and the Blues Survivors and Texas Blues Legend Anson Funderburgh – April 5

Friday, April 5, 8 p.m.

Mark Hummel and the Blues Survivors and Texas Blues Legend Anson Funderburgh, The Sky and Ocean Aren’t the Only Way to See Inspiring Blues in Laguna in 2024

The Laguna Beach Cultural Arts Center (LBCAC) has stepped up to preserve one of America’s most powerful and influential art forms, by providing a memorable OC haven for national touring blues legends.

The LBCAC offers its intimate listening room, stellar acoustics, state-of-the-art sound system and a host town recognized as one of the nation’s leading arts-centric resort destinations.

Mark Hummel, a Grammy nominee, blues award winner, author and harp man has had another banner year. Grammy nominated for his Remembering Little Walter CD he produced and performed on, Hummel also won Best Blues CD and Best Traditional Blues CD at the Blues Music Awards in Memphis, Tenn. Hummel’s “The Hustle Is Really On” climbed to #2 and stayed in the top five for four months on the Living Blues Radio Charts. Hummel’s book Big Road Blues:12 Bars on I-80 garnered rave reviews and was nominated for best Independent Book release.

Anson Funderburgh has been an unstoppable force on the national blues circuit since his debut album with his Rockets, in 1981. Along the way, he listened to the greats of the genre, absorbing all he could. His biggest influences stylistically were Freddie King and B.B. King, but Funderburgh also embraced the West Side sounds of Buddy Guy, Otis Rush and Magic Sam. “I like all the guys that played behind the harmonicas, too – Luther Tucker and Robert Jr. Lockwood, Louis and David Meyers. I love all those old Jimmy Reed things with Eddie Taylor. There’s just so many.” Jazz greats Kenny Burrell and Barney Kessel also had an impact.
