She sent this farewell note: “I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to all of you, for coming to Folk Ragoût and New Time Ensemble concerts, for taking lessons at my studio, and for attending classes and workshops at Swallow Hill. Thank you for supporting independent musicians like myself and thank you for making Colorado feel like home. I’m sad to be leaving all of you, but I know we’ll meet again. Music is a beautifully small world in that way!
Be happy, be musical, ~Leslie” www.leslieanneharrison.comc. 207.730.1630
