Piper Leigh to perform at Caffé Acoustic
Piper Leigh, a singer, songwriter and 1999 graduate of Cowley College,
is the featured entertainment during Caffé Acoustic, held January
17 at Brown’s in Arkansas City.
Leigh, an Arkansas City native and the daughter of Doug and Dejon Ewing, will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free. Leigh’s venues include playing in Dublin and Dingle, Ireland, with Gerry O’Beirne; at the Tumbleweed Festival in Garden City; and at the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield. Other venues include The Artichoke and River City Brewery in Wichita and The Celtic Fox and The Starry Night Cafe in Topeka.
Leigh’s CD, "A Night at the Cabaret," is a recording of two Live shows combined for a great enjoy-the-show experience. Some of Piper's original songs, "It Ain't Me," "1,000 Miles From Sunday," and "Down On Beale," are surrounded by such an eclectic collection of styles that there's sure to be something everyone can enjoy. This CD is a window into Piper's versatility as a performer. She has performed with fellow Caffé Acoustic performer Tim Durham and shares a repertoire which consists of funky classics, blues tunes, Irish folk songs, country, jazz standards, and some original songs.
Brown’s is located at 225 S. Summit St. Caffé Acoustic is a community project, with CornerBank, Home National Bank, and Union State Bank helping fund the concert series.
