Bill Leslie's Carolina Conversations

Free Concert

Posted April 16, 2007

Every week I get calls and emails from people asking me about my music. Many say they would like to see a concert featuring my band. Well, Bill Leslie & Lorica will be in concert this weekend in Cary. And it’s free! Sunday’s program at 3:00P.M. is part of the Spring Sertoma Series at Bond Park in the amphitheatre. I sure hope the weather is nice.

Bond Metro Park has been described as a “beautiful oasis in the midst of the city.” It is one of the largest local parts I know at 310 acres. It is a great place for a picnic, a hike, a ballgame or a concert.

We’ll be playing two sets of music including songs from my “I Am a River” CD which recently was named one of the top five albums of the year by international radio hosts (NAR). We will also play tunes from “Peaceful Journey,” the album inspired by my favorite places across North Carolina. We’ll sprinkle in some classic Celtic tunes and a few from my days with band Bragh Adair and lots of interesting stories.

You’ll have a chance to meet the members of the band: violinist Sherry Lattin, pianist and vocalist Marty Long, flutist Linda Metz and percussionist Stephen Levitin. I am deeply honored to perform with this outstanding group of musicians.

So pack a picnic and come on out to Fred Bond Metro Park in Cary Sunday, April 22nd. Again, our show in the Sertoma Amphitheatre starts at 3:00P.M. and is FREE! We’ll have a great time!

    Bill, I hope you are doing well. I haven't talked to you in a long time and would love to be there if I were going to be in town. I am sure it will be terrific. Have a great time! Sandy Edwards

    Being in the heart of God's country here in Johnston County, I think I will have to brave the elements( more than likely the traffic!lol) to see this! I have about worn out my cd - "I am a River". Not sure where this place is, but "have google, will find it"! Have a great day!
