The Woodlands Pavilion is tucked into the woods, so remains cool, even in the heat of summer. The "walls" are screens so it is open to the summer air, while keeping out critters. Beautiful to sing in....

Elise and Lea will be meeting in person for the first time for this special concert at First E! However at the beginning of the pandemic they met virtually, and have since "shared the stage” at several online concerts and songfests. They are very excited for this opportunity to harmonize on each other’s songs, and let the inspiration of the moment create an exciting evening that will include plenty of opportunities for the audience to join in the fun.

Lea Morris

Lea Morris, was born in Baltimore to a father who toured the world playing trumpet in the funk band Black Heat and a mother who dreamed of opera while performing with her siblings in the Jones Family Gospel Singers. LEA was singing on the pulpit of the Baptist church where she grew up as soon she could speak. When she discovered the acoustic guitar as a teenager, she began teaching herself to play by writing songs. LEA’s final year in high school was in Germany at a classical conservatory, where she sang with the jazz ensemble Black & White and co-wrote with the British pop trio Indigo Wild.
Having shared the stage with luminaries including Odetta, Mavis Staples, Dar Williams, and Anthony Hamilton, LEA performs at a far-ranging array of venues, including arts centers, universities, festivals, and places of worship. She is consistently acknowledged by the Washington Area Music Association as one of the region’s best vocalists, songwriters and recording artists. She is a graduate of the prestigious Artist-in-Residence program at The Music Center at Strathmore in Bethesda, MD, as well as a beloved children's music performer.

This is a Spontaneous Improvisation with the audience at Steve's Live Music in Atlanta. It is a song of gratitude to live music, to all the musicians who make playing so much fun, and to folks who come to listen and are also willing to become part of the music.
