Lee Bartley has been asked to open the festivities on Saturday, May 28th, 2016 with a solo performance beginning at 10:30am at the Riverfest Festival in Farmington, New Mexico.

He will have all three of his solo piano CDs available for purchase and for autographs following his performance. Please join him for a late morning, peaceful beginning to what should be a great Riverfest 2016!

On June 8th, 2014, Lee debuted “Carried Away” his third solo CD in Mountainair, New Mexico. This CD consists of eleven compositions. It embodies a new concept for Lee in that four of the compositions were written with lyrics. Even though they are not sung by a vocalist on this recording, the lyrics are printed in the CD case allowing listeners to follow along as the melodies are played, giving the audience a refreshing way to envision a song. Listen to the tracks and purchase the CD directly from Lee here.
