Leah Song


Leah Song is a storyteller, song-catcher, musician, poet, and activist primarily known for her role as front-woman of Rising Appalachia, alongside her sister Chloe Smith. As a soloist, Leah incorporates sultry vocals, folklore, boleros, and the blues into her troubadour performance. Her music is based in the traditions of Southern soul, the diasporic music of the Celtic Isles, and her deep studies of traditional folk music from across the Americas. She has studied and worked alongside some of the greatest teachers and tradition keepers of our time including Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Bobby Mc Ferin, Martin Shaw, Joanna Macy, Charles Eisenstein, Winona LaDuke, Guadelupe Urbina, Sobunfu Some, and Rosemary Gladstar.
