Soulful Sophistication: Louise Goffin

8:00pm
Club Helsinki: 405 Columbia Street, Hudson
518-828-4800 www.helsinkihudson.com

​Folk-pop royalty Louise Goffin brings her soulful, sophisticated brand of pop music to Hudson. Louise’s Brooklyn babysitter was Little Eva (of “The Loco-Motion” fame), who sang nursery rhymes that were actually songs written in the next room by her parents, the legendary songwriting duo Gerry Goffin and Carole KIng. Coming of age in LA’s Laurel Canyon during its musical halcyon days molded Louise into a badass, multi-talented, modern-day renaissance woman.
