His latest studio recording, “If We Had a Fire” was Roots Recording of the Year from the East Music Awards. Many artists have recorded his songs, including Measha Brueggergosman, Ode de L’Acadie, The Rankins, and Jimmy Buffet.

Now Lennie brings his songs and stories to The Registry.
SATURDAY AFTERNOON WORKSHOP* –
Tom Leighton – 1pm Choir Workshop
SING with Tom Leighton. Tom will provide his own chorale arrangements for some Canadian folk songs that will quickly get everyone singing together and in harmony. No choir or music reading experience is necessary, though it always helps to move things along easier. We will learn some vocal techniques and exercises along the way, but not at the expense of having fun.
Tickets $20 Advance/$25 at the Door.
Saturday March 18, 8 pm
