It seems we're at a particularly rich period in culture-making where innovation is abounding among people of faith. Lowland Hum is no exception. They are the 'multisensory artistic collaboration' of Daniel and Lauren Goans. This North Carolinian folk duo are re-imagining the concert experience by focusing on house concerts where audience members break local bread together, offer comments or questions in between songs and follow thoughtful lyrics in tiny hand-bound books. Participating in a Lowland Hum house concert blurs the line between performer and listener, allowing you to actively experience the music on many levels.
Charlottesvillians are lucky: Lowland Hum has just made their home with us and we're excited to be hosting them for one of their first house concerts at the Bonhoeffer House (1841 University Circle), Friday, October 3rd. Doors open at 7:30pm with snacks and the concert will begin at 8. Parking is available at the Culbreth Road parking garage, just a short walk from the house. Go to lowlandhum.com where you can also read their feature on NPR's All Songs Considered and watch their Tiny Desk Concert.
