July 12th: Download of the Week
Pardon our absence last week! With travel, classes, and tests, things got pretty hectic and the week got away from us. We’ll try to get back on track this week and fill you in on what we’ve been up to this July (I can’t believe it’s already July 11th!)
To kick off the week, here’s a song Laura and I both love by one of our favorite bands, Carbon Leaf. We got to see them perform at Wolf Trap three summers ago (I think it was three summers ago? Hmm…I’ll need to check on that), and we could not believe how good they were live. They performed with The Pat McGee Band, as well as Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers (I had never heard of them before, but they were great).
Fun fact? Pat McGee hails from Annandale, VA, and Carbon Leaf is from Richmond, VA.
Sad fact? Carbon Leaf played at a fraternity at my alma mater UVA a little more than a year ago, but I didn’t hear about it until it was too late! Which broke my heart. But you have to love any band that is nice enough to do an event like that.
We have so many favorite songs by Carbon Leaf, but here’s “Life Less Ordinary,” which you may have heard on the radio at one point or another. Hope you like it!
