WTMD Welcomes Brandi Carlile at Wolf Trap

Special Guests
Justin Townes Earle
The Lone Bellow

 

  • Brandi Carlile has been performing since she was 7 and began
    building a hometown fan base when she was in her teens. Today, she
    writes and performs insightful music around the world with 2 band mates,
    twins Phil and Tim Hanseroth, who provide textured harmonies to her
    affecting voice and reflective lyrics.
  • Her latest release, Bear Creek (2012), explores fresh
    territory, creating a unique blend of country, soul, and rock ’n’ roll.
    With multifaceted talent and crystalline vocals, it is easy to see why
    AllMusic.com hails her as “a singular talent.”
  • Carlile’s hit “The Story” was used in promotions for General
    Motors and the 2008 Summer Olympics. It was also played on the TV show Grey’s Anatomy.
  • “As a singer, Brandi Carlile is prone to let loose, and her
    voice is a visceral marvel; even the falsetto range is red-blooded and
    clarion clear.”—American Songwriter
  • The Lone Bellow,
    a folk-rock trio out of Brooklyn, sings earnest songs of romance and
    redemption with soft acoustic-based instrumentation and swelling 3-part
    harmonies that evoke the emotional intensity of a gospel choir. This
    year they released a self-titled debut album that is “full of haunting,
    passionate songs that breathe with country soul and a kind of autumnal
    grace” (AllMusic.com).


  • Americana Music Award-winner Justin Townes Earle—son
    of country legend Steve Earle—mirrors the same traditional sound and
    heartfelt songwriting of folk artists past. With 5 albums released in
    the last 6 years, this maverick draws in fans with intimate lyrics and
    his “snaky baritone [that] has long been a magnetic draw” (The New Yorker).
