Carl Anderson’s adept folksy songwriting and never-fail sense of humor took him from a local festival staple to a full-time Tennessee troubadour. His earnest lyrics, sincere, rich baritone vocals and simple acoustic guitar stylings find him trailing a long wake of critical praise. The prodigal Americana son returns to Charlottesville with fellow Nashville singer-songwriter Mary Bragg.

Friday 1/30. Free, 8pm. The Pink Warehouse, 100 South St. www.thecarlanderson.com.
