Grammy nominee and award-winning artist, Sophie B. Hawkins, comes to Stage One/FTC on Saturday, June 10th.
Ms. Hawkins headlines a benefit concert for the ACLU, with the talented band Run Jenny and Eric Himan opening up this stellar night of music. Sophie B Hawkins earned a Grammy nomination for the hit single: “Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover” and she’s earned numerous awards, including an ASCAP award for longest running single, “As I Lay Me Down”. For Ms. Hawkins, her earlier songs have even become more meaningful today. “I kind of grow into them and they never stop amazing me. I feel very privileged to have written them.” Eric Himan is a dynamic singer/songwriter hailing from Tulsa, Oklahoma who has toured with Ani DiFranco, Leon Russell and in 2016 shared the stage with the Indigo Girls. Sister Funk/Run Jenny is a Connecticut band favorite, and their song Get My Whiskey On was nominated by OutMusic Awards for best country song. This evening’s performance is underwritten by Lulu B. Productions, a event production company based in Rowayton, CT. and ticket proceeds benefit the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union).
