If you ever wanted to rock out to some sea shanties, this is your chance: head to hear Carbon Leaf (pictured) at Bridge Street Live in Collinsville on Friday, where fingers'll fly on fretboards, voices will blend in tight harmonies and sticks will shuffle on drumheads. Their latest album, Ghost Dragon Attacks Castle, pretty much captures the five-man band making good use of their extensive collection of guitars, basses, drums, mandolins, bouzoukis, fiddles, whistles, accordions and whatever else the situation calls for. Native Run opens the show.
