Carbon Leaf: Banish Misfortune
[purchase official Carbon Leaf releases here]
One of the joys of seeing a band live is hearing them tackle a tune that they haven’t recorded. Carbon Leaf, in their early days, were known for the Celtic folk influence in their music. But they never made an official recording of Banish Misfortune. This is a traditional Irish tune, but it is also found in the repertoire of many American folk artists, especially in the South. Carbon Leaf gives it a light rock touch, while retaining the flavor of a folk tune.
