Carbon Leaf, the Celtic/Bluegrass group from Richmond, Virginia will be playing The Pour House on January 5th with opening act Matt Mackelcan.

The five-piece band got their break in 2001 when they were the first unsigned band to ever perform live at the American Music Awards. The their earlier records are heavily influenced by Celtic rhythms, while their newer releases are more mainstream rock. The boys are still bringing the noise at their live shows, so be sure to check them out.

If you're unfamiliar with the band, take a listen to "The Boxer" and get a taste of what they're all about.

Tickets for the 9 p.m. show are on sale now for $10.
