Cas Haley
Saturday, October 26
GENRE: Pop/Rock/Reggae

From his early days with his musician parents, surrounded by the sounds of blues, ‘60s-‘70s rock, and Bob Marley, through his immersion in ska/punk/skateboard culture and the classic reggae-pop of bands like UB40 and Sublime, Cas went on to a second-place finish on America’s Got Talent and some hard-knock lessons about the music business. Through it all –his years of touring, and now in the fourth year of his fruitful collaboration with Easy Star Records – Cas has never lost sight of music’s core message of communication among people and nations.

Carbon Leaf
Friday & Saturday, December 6 & 7
8pm both nights with a 3pm ALL AGES MATINEE on Saturday, December 7
GENRE: Pop/Rock

“Virginia natives Carbon Leaf weave their signature indie-rock blend of Celtic, Appalachian, folk, and country into a rousing new brand of music best described as ‘ether-electrified porch music’.

The five-man band’s steadfast arrangement of guitar, bass, drums, and mandolin is rounded out with more exotic instruments, like the bouzouki, fiddle, accordion and penny whistle, all tied together by lead singer Barry Privett’s bold, straightforward baritone.

Long beloved in their hometown ofRichmondand known for high-energy live shows, the group entered onto the national scene in 2002 by winning an American Music Award with the Irish-tinged hit “The Boxer,” a narrative about a fighter who’s at the top of his game but scraping the bottom of love’s barrel.

Pioneering dreams, broken hearts, Love’s renewal  – all traverse the American landscape as common themes in Carbon Leaf’s music, as is reflected in the dark, bluesy “Another Man’s Woman,” and “Miss Hollywood,” a Southern-twanged ballad about the angst of dating an enormous sign.”

For Fans Of: Stephen Kellogg, Great Big Sea, Sister Hazel, Gaelic Storm

Todd Snider
Saturday & Sunday, January 4 & 5
GENRE: Pop/Rock/Country

Called “America’s sharpest musical storyteller” by Rolling Stone, folk-rock artist Todd Snider has mastered the balancing act of blending his influences with a personal flair to create a unique, alluring blend of Americana storytelling and heartbreak. Country music legend Kris Kristofferson describes Snider as having “the heart and humor of John Prine, the wild unpredictability of Roger Miller, and a fresh, original spirit and freedom of imagination that’s absolutely his own.”

Snider got his start after being discovered and polished by former Jimmy Buffett band member Keith Sykes and went on to sign with the legend’s Margaritaville Records. It was here that his debut album, Songs for the Daily Planet, was released in 1994 with his attention grabbing single “Talkin’ Seattle Grunge Rock Blues.” It was this track that proved Snider’s unique talent for appealing to a broad audience from rebellious young people to the aging rebels of the 1960s kick off of rock and roll.

Snider’s latest album is Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables. The album debuted in the Top 20 of four separate Billboard charts, including the Indie Label Chart, the Folk Chart, the Internet Chart, and the Independent Core Store Report. The New York Times hailed it as “among his best” and Rolling Stone called it “the sharpest musical response yet to the excesses of the one percent.”

For Fans Of: Justin Townes Earle, Loudon Wainwright III, Hayes Carll, James McMurtry, Robert Earl Keen
