What does HOME mean to you?

“Is it in the streets, fields, and forests where you grew up? Or does it rest in the warm embrace of a loved one after a long day? Of all the places we plant our roots, few things bring us HOME in our hearts like music. The strum of a guitar, the beat of a drum, the echoing chorus of a favorite song… Music holds a way of guiding us to a place of inner peace, joy and sanctuary unlike anything in this world. For 24 years, LEAF has thrived as a community born of friendships, memories, and cultural celebration.. and for the 47th LEAF, we will take that legacy one step further welcoming artists from nations who find their homes in great peril, yet despite all odds continue to share their music, message, and medicine with us all. Join us this FALL where three generations of families hailing from the four corners of the Globe will gather to celebrate the power of music & arts to “Bring Us Home” as ONE Family once again.“
