US quintet Carbon Leaf will be touring the UK this October to celebrate the band’s 25 Anniversary.

This tour finds Carbon Leaf celebrating a monumental anniversary.

“We’ve been gifted an opportunity to write and perform in front of an audience for 25 years now and it’s hard to believe,” reflects Carbon Leaf’s Barry Privett. “We are lucky to have someone on the other end, receiving what we create, and giving back a connectedness that not everyone gets to experience.

“There is a lot of space, time, and miles on either end of a 2-hour show. Our audience has been the thing that sustains us and drives us forward. It’s not something we take for granted.”

With a career spanning 25 years, 17 albums, and 2,400+ live shows, Carbon Leaf’s independent spirit and vibrant music continues to resonate with its fans.

The group blends folk, Celtic, bluegrass, Americana and rock traditions into what the group calls ‘Ether-Electrified Porch Music,’ a term coined from its 1999 album of the same name.

The Virginia quintet’s songs of life, love, heartbreak and landscape are independently written, recorded and produced from its own studio in Richmond.

The 25th anniversary tour is comprised of four dates, including a night at London’s Islington Academy in October.

The full tour dates are (all October 2018)

17 – London O2 Islington Academy 1
18 – Birmingham O2 Academy 3
19 – Manchester Deaf Institute
20 – Glasgow King Tuts
