Dead Winter Carpenters is playing somewhat of a homecoming gig on Friday, Feb. 16. The band, which hails from Tahoe City, has steadily gained recognition over the past few years and returns to North Shore venue Crystal Bay Casino for a performance any Americana fan won’t want to miss.

“Since forming in 2010, California-based Dead Winter Carpenters has gained a reputation for steadfast touring, heartfelt performances, and authentic Americana,” states the band’s biography, which notes the group has been described as leading a movement of redefining string music and its possibilities.

“That progressive nature shines through in the band’s latest album, ‘Washoe,’” continues the bio.

The record dropped at the start of 2016 and features the hits “Midnight Ghost,” “Love Amongst Thieves” and “Winning Hand.”

“A 12-song collection of original songs by Dead Winter Carpenters members, ‘Washoe’’s diverse track list pays tribute to diverse musical influences including classic rock, bluegrass, alt-country and rockabilly,” continues the bio.

It’s an album that truly embodies the band and its movement to change the current face of Americana.

Dead Winter Carpenters takes the stage in Crystal Bay, Nevada, at 9 p.m. Friday evening. Tickets cost $17 in advance ($20 on the day of the show) and are available online at, where additional information can be found.

Guests must be at least 21 years old in order to attend the show.
