To Book Piper Leigh & The Smokin' Section:
Piper Leigh & The Smokin’ Section will take you on a ride. Jumping from Blues to Bluegrass to Country to Motown, this group is tasteful, grounded in the groove, and loved by hippies everywhere!
They’ve been Smokin’ up stages all across the mid-west region. They’ve been crowd favorites at El Dorado’s Iron Horse Concert Hall, at Oakley KS’s Annual Annie Oakley Golf Tournament and have drawn appreciative audiences from one region's listening room to the next. They’ve appeared on the stages of Winfield’s Walnut Valley Festival, Enid’s Fling at the Springs Festival, Garden City’s Tumbleweed Festival and Guthrie’s Oklahoma International Bluegrass Festival.
Leigh’s songs are anchored in folk and roots, while her melody and delivery show strong country and blues sensibilities. Her sound has the bluesy, earthy feel of Susan Tedeschi or Janis Joplin while also capturing the emotion and musical adventurism of fellow genre-hopping artist, Eva Cassidy. Piper is at one moment folkie and ethereal, the next moment a smoky chanteuse.
She has independently released two records, ‘A Night at the Cabaret’, a live performance (2006), and ‘Piper Leigh’, an original album, released August 2009. The band is currently working on a new project, "Piper Leigh & The Smokin' Section: LIVE "
