Even though Michelle Leigh is a rising star on the Nashville scene she never forgets her roots. Coming from Bakersville, North Carolina she can appreciate either the simple pleasure of a front porch swing or a limo ride down Broadway. Her music can best be described as “Raw & Honest Country Rock, Sugarland soaked in Janis Joplin & Tina Turner with a healthy dose of Dolly for inspiration.”
Michelle has won awards such as Nashville’s Country Blast Radio/Josie Awards southern rock artist of the year and southern rock song of the year.
A portion of proceeds will go to the Mitchell County Animal Rescue, Inc-North Carolina and The Family Violence Coalition of Yancey County, Inc. There will also be a silent auction of goods, services and art from local businesses and artists.
Other performers include former keyboardist from Molly Hatchet, Andy Orth and local rockers AbBi NoRMal.
