After almost two decades together, Carbon Leaf (playing tonight at the Bluebird Theater with Chamberlin) has effectively created its own brand of accessible bluegrass. But the Virginia natives can't be pinned to a single genre -- the band has an ostensible pop side, one that best translates live through Carbon Leaf's varying stringed instrumentation.
This year's Live, Acoustic... And In Cinemascope! perfectly captures the group's on-stage cohesiveness, while showcasing Barry Privett's sunny vocals as he leads Carbon Leaf fans through a look back at the band's long and steady career. This show is sixteen and up, and tickets are $16-20. Doors open at 7 p.m., and bands begin at 8 p.m.
