In addition, last week the band was selected as 2021 Billboard Music Awards finalists for Top Rock Song “Heat Waves” and Top Rock Album Dreamland.

Earlier this month, Glass Animals performed “Heat Waves” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where the band took over Margate’s Dreamland Theme Park and brought it back to life with an electrifying performance—watch HERE. In addition, they performed on The Ellen Degeneres Show where they took over a skate rink and used fan submitted footage to fill the television screens behind their performance—watch HERE.

LEAF ReTreat: May 13-16th
May 15 @ 10:00 am – May 16 @ 3:00 pm
Lake Eden

LEAF Retreat is created to Rejuvenate the soul and Replenish our inspiration in this beautiful secluded place, Lake Eden, in which you can relax and get away.

It’s less than 1/5 the attendee size of Festival while maintaining the same footprint which gives you the feeling of having the place to yourself. Connecting with the outdoors is an essential part of the experience. Stages are smaller, more intimate with meet and greets and a focus on local and regional artists.

Great music in open air settings, special featured performances with LatinX artists, along with workshops, panel discussions and activities to recharge your spirits. Prepare for a time of reflection, reconnection, healing, friendship and fun in a safe healthy beautiful setting.

*Please note: This is a private event for LEAF members only.*
Not a member? Don’t worry! You can easily become a member for as little as $50 a year. Simply visit this link to join: https://theleaf.org/give-to-leaf/

Gretchen Peters Live Stream

Join us as we host Gretchen for another live stream event before she gets ready to head back out on tour.

“…songs that manage, with deft use of language, to cram a whole epic into three minutes. It’s astonishingly good writing.” – Pop Matters

Gretchen’s special guest will be her “Blackbirds” cowriter and collaborator Ben Glover (www.benglover.co.uk)

A singer and songwriter whose work is both literate and easily relatable, Gretchen Peters has enjoyed a successful career as a recording artist, releasing a series of albums that have made her a cult heroine thanks to her clear, expressive voice and way with a melody. Her recordings have earned her a devoted following, but there are plenty of folks who are fans of her work and don’t even know it — Peters is a go-to songwriter for many of the biggest Names in country and pop. In 1991, Peters’ “The Chill of an Early Fall” was recorded by George Strait and became her first hit as a tunesmith, while Martina McBride’s 1993 recording of “Independence Day” was not only a major success, but was voted Song of the Year by the Country Music Association. Enjoy this wonderful evening of music with a festive theme.

Y0u will also have the ability to interact with her after the show on our Zoom platform.

Nikki Talley + Jason Sharp
May 16 @ 7:00 pm
Isis Music Hall

Along with her guitar & clawhammer style banjo, Nikki Talley‘s musical partner & husband Jason Sharp adds resonant lush guitar tones as well as harmonies to round out this duo’s sound

Hardworking, energetic, mountain girl with a big voice…these could all describe Nikki Talley. Raised in Ruffin, North Carolina and hailing from Asheville, it’s only fitting that her music is as eclectic as the state that boasts the mountains and the sea. Trying to pin down Nikki’s style, critics and reviewers alike have compared her to Patty Loveless and Gillian Welch, but to leave the comparisons there would be doing a disservice to her fiery stage performance, hauntingly seductive and raw gritty lyrics, lifted by a voice that harkens back to the Appalachian roots from which she was born, and shores up on the edges of contemporary country, folk, and old time that has her audiences stomping and clapping for more.

Come enjoy an evening of live music, food and drinks at the Isis Music Hall. Reservations are highly recommended.

This concert will also be Live Streamed from the Isis Music Hall Facebook Page
