Carbon Canaries is formed out of a musical bond between three friends. They’re made up of Steve Kowbel (guitar, vocals), Andrew Droogsma (guitar, vocals) and Autumn Rupkey (percussion) and they play an array of original songs and covers in an acoustic, folk fashion.
See Carbon Canaries at Little BIG Fest on Saturday, November 5 at Wooly’s (304 E Locust Ave.) at 2:30pm
