    Howie Day's emotionally resonant lyrics and inventive melodies have earned him both critical praise and a legion of devoted fans. He is known for his energetic, heartfelt shows, where he connects with audiences through the strength of his songwriting and his quirky sense of humor. Day's warm tenor voice "soars into fluttering, high registers, but also grates with real, pleading grit," as one critic put it. After sales of over a million albums and two Top 10 hits, Day is back on the road showcasing old favorites, as well as new material from his upcoming studio release.

    Virginia natives Carbon Leaf weave their signature indie-rock blend of Celtic, Appalachian, folk, pop, 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.
