If you went to Outside Lands in 2013, you might have caught the Sonoma County duo the Easy Leaves performing on the mainstage. Formed after a fortuitous open mic night at the former Hopmonk Tavern in Sebastopol in 2008, the Easy Leaves — Sage Fifield and Kevin Carducci — make retro country tunes with a Western twang and a whole lotta pedal steel and slide guitar. On Saturday, Jan. 7, they headline the fifth annual Western Winter Formal at the Great American Music Hall, along with other Americana acts, like the eight-piece honky-tonk band Country Lips and singer-songwriters Caleb Klauder and Reeb Willms.
The Easy Leaves with Country Lips, Caleb Klauder, and Reeb Willms, at 9 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 7, at the Great American Music Hall. $20-$45; slimspresents.com.
