Carbon Leaf to Play Live at The Wolf Den/Mohegan Sun Casino, 11/14
Carbon Leaf, Mohegan Sun Casino, The Wolf Den
The band's autonomous spirit forges on in recording and producing independently from their own studio. Releasing their music directly to fans has rekindled their creative output and inspired them to release more music and with greater frequency. Since 2010, the band has released 5 independent albums - why wait two years for an album cycle?
Blending musical traditions into their own sound for 12 albums now, Carbon Leaf's music can best be summed up by the title of one of their earliest releases, "Ether-Electrified Porch Music." The Carbon Leaf sound conveys an aura of warmth, punctuated by diverse instruments including mandolin, upright bass, fiddle, penny whistle, banjo, cello, peddle steel, accordion, acoustic and electric guitars, bodhrán and bagpipes.
Now in their 20th year of award-winning recording, this Richmond, Virginia quintet is consistently traversing America with their nonstop touring schedule, bringing with them an impressive portfolio of achievements, as they continue to produce a steady stream of new music coupled with energetic live-shows throughout North America.

Along the way, Carbon Leaf scored hit singles at AAA and Hot AC Radio with "Life Less Ordinary" and "The Boxer." The band placed first in the International Songwriting Competitionfor "The War Was In Color" and was the first independent band to ever win an American Music Award for the "The Boxer" in 2002. In 2010, Carbon Leaf wrote six songs for the Curious George 2 soundtrack (Universal Pictures).
