A Music Company Inc. is bringing Americana/alt-country band Dead Winter Carpenters to Ivywild School, 1604 S. Cascade Ave, Colorado Springs, on Saturday, February 22, 2014. Show time is 7:00p.m.
Hailing from North Lake Tahoe, CA, Dead Winter Carpenters represents everything the American west stands for. The band seamlessly blends Americana with roots rock and a tinge of straightforward ‘tell-it-like-it-is’ alt- country for hard-hitting performances that are as edgy as they are whimsical. The project pushes and pulls at musical boundaries with top-notch, live performances while walking the line with unexpected world music flair. With an unbridled spirit, and an authentic approach to the art of songwriting, the five-piece captures the freedom of the road with the kind of energy that is made of legends. The five-piece outfit consists of fiddler/vocalist Jenni Charles, upright bassist/vocalist David Lockhart, guitarists/vocalists Jesse Dunn and Bryan Daines, and drummer/vocalist Brian Huston.
Dead Winter Carpenters have been keeping good company while on tour. Recent festivals have had them sharing the stage with Leftover Salmon, Elephant Revival, The Infamous Stringdusters, Head for the Hills and Greensky Bluegrass.
