Aaron Crawford will perform at the Marysville Opera House on Feb. 10.

The E&E Country Showcase will return to the Marysville Opera House this year with a Feb. 10 concert featuring Aaron Crawford.

The concert is scheduled from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:45 p.m.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online at marysvillewa.gov in their events section.

The downtown Marysville Opera House is at 1225 Third Street Marysville.

Unlike other monthly programs at the opera house there are only a couple of these showcases each year, which are meant to be "bigger acts and bigger productions" than some of their other programs, said Lauren Woodmansee, a recreation coordinator at Marysville's Parks, Culture and Recreation Department.

"It started last January, so we're moving into our second year with this program," she said.

So far, the public enjoys the concerts.

"They have been really well-received and we have had a great turnout on these concerts," she said.

This time the program will bring Pacific Northwest country artist Aaron Crawford to the stage.

"We bring in talented northwest artists," said Woodmansee. "We have artists who perform all over the state, at the Gorge and at other venues, and they're coming right here to Marysville."

Locals enjoy the Country Showcase because its something they don't have to go that far out of their way for, said Woodmansee.

"They like having a concert that is located right here, they don't have to travel that far," she said.

The tickets are also priced so that most residents can come out.

"People like that it is affordable. It's not an expensive ticket. There's no handling fees or anything like that, just a flat $10," said Woodmansee.

The City of Marysville entered a lease with the Marysville Opera House to bring more cultural programs to the city.

Woodmansee said it has been successful so far.

"We're happy with the programs and support they are receiving," she said, and added that she is very positive about the direction it is going.

The city attempts to provide a wide variety of programs that go on there.

"We try to offer programs for many different age groups and different musical tastes," said Woodmansee. "We try to make sure we offer a little bit of everything."

She is also excited about the upcoming concert.

"We're really excited to have Aaron Crawford. It should be a sold-out show and it's great for couples as its right before Valentine's Day," she said.

Local business E&E Lumber also sponsors the concert. "We have a great relationship with our sponsor," said Woodmansee.

Ticket sales end on Feb. 10 at 4 p.m. If still available, tickets will be sold at the door.
