Broadcasted live from the artists’ living room, this show is part of Sixth & I’s new weekly concert series designed to shine a spotlight on the best local talent. Stream this set for free on our Facebook page and stay tuned as we announce more Living Room Sessions.

Evoking Patty Griffin’s dynamic voice, Bonnie Raitt’s smoky aura, and Ben Harper’s unique slide style, Lauren Calve’s musical compositions find their ground in the sounds of blues and Americana, guitar and lap steel, but their strength lies in how they go beyond tradition into innovative melodies, structures and arrangements that define their originality.  The Northern Virginia native recently released “Better Angels” off her upcoming Wildfire EP, out June 23, a song that was originally inspired by Abraham Lincoln’s inaugural address on the eve of the Civil War but has now found an overwhelming new meaning to Calve in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. She created a special tribute video to honor some of the front line workers in her DMV community helping in the fight against the virus.

Sixth & I is committed to providing dynamic and entertaining programming while our building is closed, but we need your help to sustain those who make this programming possible. If you can, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution of any amount. Donations will be shared evenly between Sixth & I and the artists featured in our Living Room Sessions series.
