NC Music Celebration: Leigh Nash

 

Our 2019 North Carolina Music Celebration continues with Leigh Nash at The Arts Place on Friday, April 26, 2019 at 7:00pm.

Leigh Nash is perhaps best known as the pixie-like singer with the heavenly voice from Sixpence None the Richer, a group that enjoyed considerable fame in 1999 with the single “Kiss Me.” These days  she has returned to her roots a little, which consist of Christian and country music, though she remains in touch with her pop influences. Nash’s original musical inspiration came from classic country heroines Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline, and Tanya Tucker — whose songs she used to learn on guitar long before the Sixpence days. With motherhood as an inspiration, she recorded Blue on Blue and moved back to Nashville to join Movement Nashville, a collective of musicians geared toward expelling the myth that Nashville’s music scene consists only of country and Christian music.

This performance is part of the 2019 Come Hear NC Music Celebration sponsored by the NC Dept of Natural and Cultural Resources, NC Arts Council and Stokes County Arts Council.

Only 150 tickets will be sold for this intimate performance.
