Aug. 30: Lowland Hum
Husband and wife folk duo Lowland Hum is coming to Jammin Java in Vienna this Friday at 7 p.m. Based out of North Carolina, Daniel and Lauren Goans released their debut album, Native Air, earlier this month. Most of the songs were written during their first year of marriage, and Daniel says the album refers to a shared journey in their search for a new identity. “You know, we’re two very different people hoping to create something cohesive together.” A visual artist, Lauren built a forest-inspired installation to serve as a backdrop during the band’s performances. Indie-folk musician Christopher Graham will also perform.
