Carbon Leaf is celebrating its 25th Anniversary in 2018 behind a new album and extensive U.S. and European touring.

Blending rock, folk, Celtic, bluegrass and Americana traditions into a high-energy style the group calls ether-electrified porch music, the Virginia quintet’s poetic songs are brought to life with acoustic & electric guitars, mandolin, fiddle, bass, drums, cello, banjo, pennywhistle, pedal steel, accordion and rich vocal harmony.


Vapors of Morphine

May 10
8:00pm

Call: 607-749-4900 or CLICK HERE

The ’90s band Morphine pioneered a new type of music – “Low Rock” – that had fans grooving worldwide to seductive, sultry and intoxicating sounds that flowed from a wildly innovative lineup: a baritone saxophone, a 2-string slide bass and drums. It was their unprecedented fusion of blues and jazz elements with alt-rock arrangements that gained them critical acclaim and five studio albums in under a decade’s time.

From those ashes have risen Vapors of Morphine and they’re playing with a new fire. Original Morphine members Dana Colley (baritone sax) & Jerome Deupree (drums) are joined by transplanted New Orleans’ blues guitarist Jeremy Lyons. They continue to seduce audiences with dreamy soundscapes, applying inventive arrangements to the unique instrumentation of electric baritone saxophone (evocative of Jimi Hendrix’ guitar), the Sandman-style 2string slide bass or electric guitar and mad jazz-rock drums.


The Bacon Brothers

July 26
8:00pm

Call: 607-749-4900 or CLICK HERE

Most people would agree that there’s nothing stronger, more durable and occasionally, even more volatile, than the bond between brothers. And when that bond includes the common goal of making music, the results often offer reason for an audience to sit up and take notice. There have been any number of examples in music’s modern era — the Everly Brothers, the Beach Boys, the Kinks and Oasis to name but a few. Not that it’s easy or even agreeable, but there is common cause, and that’s generally enough to ensure there’s passion and purpose in its creation.

Just as the Bacon Brothers. Fiercely devoted to making music, even from an early age, the two siblings share a singular body of work that’s found them spending more than 20 years of working the road and paying their dues, resulting in seven albums.


Brett Dennen

July 31
8:00pm

CLICK HERE
or Call: 607-749-4900

Singer-songwriter Brett Dennen is a contemplative introvert by nature, an adventurer by soul, and the great communicator by effect. Much of his music stems inspiration from indulging in the natural environment around him – from camping trips along the Sierra Nevada mountain range to climbing Everest and Kilimanjaro. In the consistent succession of six previous albums, Dennen has fluidly motioned between worlds of self-reflection and discovery, and interacting with the environment outside of the self.
