Join the North Carolina Museum of History in partnership with artist Leah Magner for the release of her CD, A Thousand Secrets, punctuated with a special concert at the museum!
Leah Magner has always been a musician. She started singing in her family’s church in preschool, soon accompanying herself on the guitar, then composing short pieces on the piano. For more than two decades, she has been playing around the Triangle area, solo and in bands, such as Shotgun Romance and the Lulus. Magner released a solo record, Blue Skies, in 2006.
After a several-year hiatus, Leah found she had much more to say. With a focus on her first love: songwriting, Magner has released A Thousand Secrets, recorded by F. J. Ventre at Good Luck Studio and produced by award-winning blues performer Jon Shain. Filled with heartbreak and longing, each song takes the listener behind the scenes to reveal a personal side to the character’s story.
The nine tracks include accompaniments by Shain, Ventre, and a few special guests, including Pattie Hopkins Kinlaw, of Hank, Pattie, and the Current on violin.
