Lowland Hum, the folk-rock duo of Daniel and Lauren Goans, is from Greensboro. But based on the group’s new album “Native Air,” you’d swear they came from a misty European mountain range, because these 14 tracks have a decidedly Old World feel. Stately, spare and elegant, the arrangements leave plenty of room for the Goans’ yearning vocal harmonies, with the lyrics offering up recurrent images of solitary emptiness. You can experience it live Saturday, when Lowland Hum opens for the similarly lovely Birds & Arrows at the Carrboro ArtsCenter.
Showtime is 8 p.m. and admission is $10 ($14 day of show). See artscenterlive.org for details.
