Leslie Robinson Sharp


As a child, I studied classical piano, sang in every choir and musical I could, and taught myself basic folk guitar in junior high. I attended Berklee College of Music in Boston and sang jazz standards with Tony Zano, Hal McKusick and Toots Thielemans. I was a member of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Chorus under Robert Shaw. I started writing my own material during my teen years.

I’ve performed my original material at The Other End in New York City, the Nameless Coffeehouse in Cambridge, Mass., and other east-coast venues, and, in recent years, at Portland (Oregon)’s East Avenue Tavern and Artichoke Community Music coffeehouse. I’ve opened for John Hammond and Papa John Creech. One of my songs won a songwriting award in the American Song Festival. I am a SESAC affiliate.

    This is Steven Shore who lived with you and about 20 other special people at the Root One, 36 years ago! I decided to make contact with some old Rooters after succeeded in contacting Tinker and Doug (now Peter).I have been living in Israel for the last 35 years, and married with 7 children and 8 grandchildren. I would love to hear from you and hear of some of your memories from that very special time. I called you once a “wise old Scorpio”. If you would like to write back, my E-mail is techelet@bezeqint.net.
    Keep well and Shalom,
    Shmaria(Steven) Shore
