Barnaby Bright / Nate Leavitt Band / Cara Domings
Since the release of their first album, Wake the Hero, in 2009, Barnaby Bright has garnered high accolades for its folk songwriting and sound. Grand prize winners of the New York Song Circle competition, Barnaby Bright's music has also been featured on ER and Days of our Lives. Their follow-up EP, Gravity, was named one of the top 100 records of the year by Amazon.com. The band is now touring in support of its brand new full-length record, The Longest Day, gracing such notable venues such as Lincoln Center and NPR's Mountain Stage in West Virgina, and sharing stages with the likes of the Lumineers and Norah Jones.

Nate Leavitt has been performing in the Boston music scene for a little over 20 years. While most of that time was spent with the super-charged soul band The Blizzard of '78, he's now part of the bands Parlour Bells and Old Jack, as well as a solo artist. Leavitt’s acoustic-based, ghostly folk debut EP, Inference, received many positive reviews, including this one from Jonathan Perry of the Boston Globe: “Effectively reflecting his affinity for the softer sounds of singer-songwriter folk and alt-country of the Ryan Adams (circa Heartbreaker) variety…Inference is an emotionally stark, bare-bones affair that puts his plainspoken, plaintive voice squarely front and center."
