FirstWorks Live—Thea Hopkins

September 19 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

Performing-songwriter Thea Hopkins’ voice sounds like no one else’s. Love is at the essence. Whether telling a story or conjuring a mood, Thea’s songs dig deep. She describes her music as “Red Roots Americana.” A member of the Aquinnah Wampanoag tribe of Martha’s Vineyard, her ancestry also includes Iroquois, African-American, Irish, and Portuguese. Thea creates a new kind of Americana, with influences ranging from classic country to contemporary folk. Her song “The Ghost of Emmett Till” won the Grand Prize in the 22nd annual Great American Song Contest in March 2021. The song was selected from over 1,900 entries from 43 countries. Honored by the Western Arts Alliance in 2019 as a Native Launchpad Artist, she’s performed on prestigious stages in the U.S. and Europe, from D.C.’s Kennedy Center to the Summertyne Americana Festival in Newcastle (UK). Come hear what all the buzz is about!

Presented as part of FirstWorks Live—Music at Roger Williams Park FREE concert series in partnership with Roger Williams Park Conservancy and Providence Parks Department.
