Richard Leigh Songwriters Festival

On Saturday, May 18, five of Nashville’s leading songwriters will gather on the campus of Virginia Highlands Community College, joined by up-and-coming talents from our region, for a day-long celebration of song.

The festival honors the work of Grammy Award Winner Richard Leigh (VHCC class of 1973), who received the love and support to follow his dreams from an adopted parent. Richard will headline this special event, which benefits the Great Expectations Program for foster care students at VHCC.

Nancy Wampler, Abingdon Branch Director and Jamie Morgan Homefinder/ TFC Supervisor attended the Richard Leigh Songwriters Festival News Conference.
