A native Kansan who earned a 4-chair turnaround in the television competition, The Voice, will share her music and personal story at a Pioneer Bluffs community event. Included in her story is a 2,190 hike of the Appalachian Trail.
Kaleigh Glanton of Colorado Springs, Co, comes to Pioneer Bluffs near Matfield Greento perform in concert Saturday, July 21. Beginning at 5:30 p.m., visitors can meet with Glanton and talk with her about her experiences. A slide show from her Appalachian Trail thru-hike, a six-month journey, will run from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.
Also beginning at 5:30 p.m., a garden bar dinner can be purchased, provided by Pioneer Bluffs volunteers. Beer and wine will also be available.
The concert begins at 7:00 p.m. Guests will hear why Glanton earned a 4-chair turnaround on The Voice in 2014.
“She immediately displayed a unique tone to her voice, turning in a performance that just kept getting stronger,” states The Voice website. “Adam Levine turned around early in her performance, followed by all the other coaches. Shakira said she adored the ‘quirky’ tone of Kaleigh’s voice; Blake said he loves Kaleigh’s ‘style.’”
“I describe my music as an indie folk sound but honestly,” says Glanton, “I feel so free to explore different variations of that. I would say it is a mix of folk, soul, blues, rock, pop all into one… I always I want it to be organic and I always want it to be me.”
Kaleigh Glanton grew up watching her father play classical guitar and at the age of four, she expressed interest in playing guitar also. Of course, Howard Glanton jumped at the opportunity to share his love for the music that had taken him around the world in international competition and unique performances. There is an opportunity to hear the classical music of Howard Glanton in a duet concert with Excier Rodriguez, at Pioneer Bluffs, at 3:00 p.m. Saturday, August 4.
Donations gratefully accepted for the concert; and will help fund Glanton’s travel expenses along with supporting prairie education programs at Pioneer Bluffs.
