Stix Hooper was happy to serve as Co-Executive Producer with Seattle-artist Eugenie Jones in presenting a series of tribute events in 2021 honoring the life and legacy of his friend, jazz & blues legend, Ernestine Anderson. “We all were very fortunate to experience her outstanding vocal artistry in our history and share in the physical presence of one of the most talented individuals ever known,” Stix stated. “May she continually rest in peace in that prime celestial space she occupies.” We look forward to continuing the tradition with annual Celebration events.
Stay tuned for a recording of the Ernestine Anderson Musical Tribute; a very special evening of music, historic reflection, and entertainment hosted at the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Center in Seattle, WA.
