      On Monday, October 23 rd from 11am-12pm, LEAF invites the community to a culturally rich performance by David LaMotte, LEAF International Guatemala & LEAF International Ivory Coast at The Orange Peel. This performance is a fantastic opportunity for school field trips, homeschoolers, all those who want to continue the LEAF weekend, or cannot make to LEAF Festival to experience an electrifying cultural performance. The 45th LEAF Festival will be taking place the weekend prior (Oct. 19-22) and is set for a FANTASTIC VOYAGE! From Lake Eden to Biltmore
      Avenue!

      David LaMotte is an award-winning songwriter, speaker and writer. He has performed over 3000 concerts and released twelve full-length CDs of primarily original music, touring in all of the fifty states, as well as five of the seven continents. The Boston Globe writes that his music “pushes the envelope with challenging lyrics and unusual tunings, but he also pays homage to folk tradition,” while BBC Radio Belfast lauds his “charm, stories, humour, insightful songs, sweet voice and dazzling guitar ability.”

      In 2004, David and his wife Deanna founded PEG Partners, a non-profit organization that supports literacy, critical thought, and artistic expression in Guatemala. He continues to serve as the President of PEG. He is also a consultant on Peace and Justice for the North Carolina Council of Churches, and recently completed his sixth and final year on the AFSC Nobel Peace Prize Nominating Task Group.
