Lowland Hum Performs "War Is Over," "Pocket Knife," & "Four Sisters, Pt. One"

"It's hard to convey the sound of two people in love, but Lowland Hum does that effortlessly," reads the National(ist) Public Radio, introducing "Daniel Levi Goans and Lauren Plank," who "are now Daniel and Lauren Goans; they met a few years ago and spent much of their first married year on the road, singing together on small stages and at house concerts across the country."

It's not so much that these two "convey the sound of two people in love" but that she conveys the look of a woman in love. No surprise she took his name. Scrawny and rather funny-looking, he's still a total alpha male.

Not so the male half of this duo, who, as far as I can tall, is less ugly than Mr. Goans above, but a beta male if there ever was one; his non-attractive wife clearly wears the pants — Shovels & Rope Perform "Birmingham," "O' Be Joyful," "Boxcar," "Keeper," "All Those Words," "Kitchen Hallway," & "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding".

Now, two married people — though not to each other — whose on-stage chemistry is undeniable and notorious — The Civil Wars Perform "Barton Hollow," "Twenty Years," and "Poison & Wine".

Finally, an off-stage couple who make nothing of their relationship in public but just stick to making beautiful music together — Gillian Welch & David Rawlings Perform "Tear My Stillhouse Down," "Acony Bell," "Caleb Meyer," "Paper Wings" & "Orphan Girl".
