“Brookside is so pleased to provide a concert that also helps the community,” said Denise Throntveit, owner of Brookside Hospitality. “The idea of combining the award winning talents of Michelle, the Songwriters Festival and supporting SafeSpace seemed a natural fit. During the concert, beverages and appetizers will be available to the audience and SafeSpace will have a booth should anyone have any questions about the organization.”
Michelle Leigh, who’s home base is Asheville, NC, is a prolific songwriter and placed in the top 10 in the 2012 Nashville Songwriters Competition with “Babydoll”, a song written about domestic abuse.

Cyndy Reeves, the founder of the Smoky Mountain Songwriters Festival invites you to “Celebrate our Appalachian Musical Roots” from August 23rd to August 25th in downtown Gatlinburg. The festival is a platform for songwriters to perform their original songs. The songwriter not only performs but tells you the story behind the song. The mission of the Smoky Mountain Songwriters Festival is to promote songwriters and to help their songs to be discovered not only by publishers and producers but; by all of us, who simply love the songwriter’s songs that the star performs. Bring your instruments and your songs or just yourself as one who appreciates good music.
