Austin-based roots trio The Carper Family is one of those very talented bands that makes their performance seem effortless. They’re always a joy to watch, thanks not only to their superb musicianship and diversity, but also their exquisite harmonizing. Those vocals will sweep you away any day. Ask any fan who’s seen them at spots like The White Horse, farmer’s markets or dance halls. It’s a brilliant mix of charming, lovely and – I’ve got to say it – badass.
There’s a busy tour schedule coming up for this trio next month that includes Brooklyn, NYC and Washington, D.C. on the itinerary. This summer, they’ll make stops in Alaska, and in Canada for some folk festivals. But be sure to catch them at their show tonight at an awesome place that’s quickly become the place to see live music, the Austin Beer Garden Brewing Co. at 1305 W. Oltorf. The music starts at 8:30 p.m., so get there early. Very recommended.
