Celtic flavored roots rockers Carbon Leaf will once again take to the high seas aboard the Provincetown II. Joined by The Jason Spooner Trio, they will perform June 22, 7pm as part of the 2012 Rock and Blues Concert Cruise series. Now in their 20th year of award-winning recording, Carbon Leaf can look back at an impressive portfolio of achievements, as they continue to produce a steady stream of new music and tour throughout North America. Tickets and additional information for this show and the entire 2012 Rock and Blues Cruise series are available at www.rockandbluescruise.com

Hailing from Virginia, the same musically fertile purlieu that has nurtured the likes of Dave Matthews Band, Bruce Hornsby and Jason Mraz, Carbon Leaf's sound reflects a wide range of influences. Their unique blend of Folk-Rock, Americana, Celtic, Bluegrass, Rock and Pop certainly lends itself to a variety of genres. But the title of one of their early albums, Ether-Electrified Porch Music, seems to conjure the right image: An aura of warmth, with music punctuated by diverse instruments including mandolin, upright bass, violin, B3, rhodes and banjo, as well as acoustic and electric guitars.

Carbon Leaf's origins began as an independent band in 1992, eventually leading to a recording contract with Vanguard Records in 2004, resulting in three albums during their six years with the label. Along the way, Carbon Leaf has scored hit singles at AAA and Hot AC Radio with "Life Less Ordinary" and "The Boxer," placed first in the International Songwriting Competition, won an American Music Award, and recorded the music for Universal Pictures' Curious George 2 Soundtrack. Their voyage has come full circle, as Carbon Leaf produced two independent albums in 2010, including the holiday 'concept' album, Christmas Child.
