Online Concert – Carleigh Nesbit

August 14, 2020 @ 7:00 pm

Carleigh Nesbit is a physician and singer songwriter from Charlottesville, Virginia.  Growing up in the heart of Appalachia, her music is heavily influenced by the folk and bluegrass traditions of the region.  She released her debut album, Flower to the Bee, in 2008 which was described by the Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange as “embodying the spirit of modern mountain music.”  While in medical school in southern Maine, she released her second album Come Out of the Kitchen, prompting this review from No Depression: “there is something beyond the music here…a fresh look at life without the encumbrances of the chaotic culture we have become…a call of a slower life, if not necessarily better. One in which we take the time to get to know one another, in which attitudes toward family and friends do not change on a dime, in which the air is fresh and problems are handled through common sense and an inbred knowledge of what is right.” Carleigh’s songs have been celebrated by the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, the Great Lakes Songwriting contest, the Thomas Jefferson Center for Free Expression, and Songwriter Universe Magazine. She is currently living in the Upper Valley of New Hampshire/Vermont and completing her residency training at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center.
