Carbon Leaf had its winter homecoming this past Saturday night at The National, with their annual holiday show full of merry tunes, fan favorites, and plenty of surprises.
After 21 years of being a band, it’s hard to believe that Carbon Leaf is busier than ever. Over the past twenty four months, the band has released two new studio albums (the Irish offering Ghost Dragon Attacks Castle and the more mellowed Constellation Prize), started their own music festival called the Ragtime Carnival, re-record one of their most beloved albums, Indian Summer, and still managed to tour the country as much as possible.
Fresh off the success of hosting the first-ever “Ragtime Carnival” this past weekend, Carbon Leaf is at it again with another major announcement to keep them beyond busy for the rest of 2014 and excite their huge fanbase. The veteran band, perhaps one of the most successful Richmond acts ever–and also one of the most underrated–announced plans on Wednesday to re-record their most successful album, Indian Summer, on the eve of its ten year anniversary via a crowdfunding campaign on the popular website Pledge Music.
This past weekend, Carbon Leaf put on the first ever Ragtime Carnival in Chesterfield at Pocahontas Live, to what has to be considered a roaring success. A two day music festival, the event utilized the main stage at Pocahontas Live and a small acoustic stage up the hill to bring nineteen sets from sixteen bands Friday evening and all day Saturday.
