Evening With Joan Osborne To Benefit Ben's Lighthouse
Ben’s Lighthouse will host what organizers are calling “a uniquely memorable evening with Joan Osborne.”
The special event is planned for Saturday, September 14, from 7 to 10 pm. The performance will be a rare opportunity to enjoy Osborne’s music in the intimate setting of a Newtown home.
Joan Osborne has been called “the most gifted vocalist of her generation and a singer who understands the nuance of phrase, time, and elocution” by AllMusic.
While she may be best known for the 90s hit “One of Us,” Osborne has been nominated for numerous awards, including a 2013 Grammy nomination for Best Blues Album. She has performed at the Grand Ole Opry and toured alongside the Grateful Dead, the Dixie Chicks, the Funk Brothers, and many others.
In 2017, Osborne released the critically acclaimed album Joan Osborne Sings The Songs Of Bob Dylan. As she put it, “...there’s a lot of uncertainty and fear about what’s happening in the world...We need to hear our great writers and poets talking about these times.”
Tickets are $150 per person and include cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres and a meet & greet with Osborne in addition to the performance. Space is limited, so reservations as soon as possible are strongly encouraged.
Proceeds will benefit Ben’s Lighthouse, a 501(c)(3) public charity.
