Live Bands

Carbon Leaf, Wyatt Wood

When: Sun., Sept. 20, 8 p.m. 2015

If you get a Dave Matthews Band vibe listening to Carbon Leaf, that’s because both bands are products of the Richmond, Virginia-area music scene. But Carbon Leaf brings more of a Celtic folk feel to its jam rock. Together for more than 20 years, the five-piece should bring an insanely tight and energetic show when it takes to the Big Dipper stage Sunday night. Those interested in more unusual instrumentations like bouzouki, fiddle, accordion and penny whistle will find all that at a Carbon Leaf show. Well-known adult contemporary tunes like “Life Less Ordinary” will be there, but also expect highlights from the band’s newest record Love Loss Hope Repeat Reneaux, a re-recording of an album released nearly a decade ago
