Erica Leigh with Kim Moberg (at Amazing Things)
This uplifting & empowering show is the perfect way to commemorate the tail-end of Women's History Month! Come see two women, cancer-survivors and socially-conscious songstresses come together to tell their stories. Whether you are a woman or if you support the women in your life – Whether you are a survivor, or a caregiver – This event has something for everybody, and will most certainly leave you feeling inspired. Erica Leigh is an ASCAP & SESAC award-winning songwriter hailing from Boston, MA. Her fans describe her as Paula Cole meets Sara Bareilles, with a soulful voice and powerful storytelling ability. Opening is Kim Moberg! Kim's musical inspiration derives from both traditional and contemporary musical genres of acoustic, roots, folk and country. She strives to sing stories that evoke contemplation and emotion. A self, taught finger pick style acoustic guitarist, Kim has an introspective interpretation of songs and is especially drawn to musical stories that tug at feelings of melancholy, heartbreak, and healing. Her original songs speak to reunion, awakening and social consciousness.Tickets: Regular $20 ~ Senior 65+ $19 ~ Member $17 ~ Student $10 *** Amazing Things Arts Center, 160 Hollis St. Framingham, MA 01702 *** (508) 405-2787
