The Nashville-based band mixes twang with another sound that's familiar to lead singer Justin Wade Tam, who has an Irish background. Humming House had unexpected accompaniment from the 6 p.m. bells coming from the Third Baptist Church on Washington Avenue. A couple of minutes later, the sirens of emergency vehicles brought more background sounds, to the delight of band members. In addition to Tam, this unique group also includes Kristen Rogers on vocals and percussion, Mike Butera on violin, Joshua Wolak on mandolin and Ben Jones on bass.
The performance was part of Thursdays at the Intersection, a weekly concert series presented by PNC Arts Alive in partnership 88.1 KDHX and Grand Center, Inc. The series continues each week through October 4. For more info, visit the Grand Center event page.
