Ginger Leigh brings a classy modern mix of uniquely high-spirited music and entertainment to the Summer Breeze concert series on Sunday July 1, at 7:30 pm in Norman’s Lions Park at the corner of Flood and Symmes. Ginger’s unique style is sultry, sassy, full of humor, wit, and wisdom. She draws the audience in with a charismatic embrace. Her highly energetic, visually stunning performances are not confined to one genre; she makes each performance her own. According to San Antonio Express News, “Leigh is a singer and songwriter with strong pipes and the talent to sidestep genres while serving up everything from folk to jazz to pop to rock. It’s always fun to go along on a Ginger Leigh musical ride.”
Leigh has self-released 8 CD’s since 1996. Her latest CD is “Better Than Well – Live at the Saxon.” Leigh has been the official emcee at the Houston Women’s Music Festival, and is also a published music critic for Central Texas’ N2 Magazine. She appeals to a large demographic around the globe, with whom she stays in close contact via her CDs, her writings, her mailers and blogs, while also receiving radio play and rave reviews in publications around the world.
Listening to Ginger Leigh’s records or watching her passionate performance on stage, one hardly realizes that much of her music is serious. She comes across with a lightness and ease, lifting up, rather than pulling down. She is in constant celebration of life’s questions and struggles. Her uniqueness lies in her ability to see and live beyond the status quo. Her strongest message is about living outside of the box, and she delivers that message with contemporary powerful up-beat rhythms and melodies.
Bring seating and your favorite refreshments, and enjoy a relaxing evening in the park filled with great music!
