Greensboro, N.C.-based Songs of Water fuses ancient and modern, acoustic grass-roots jam sessions and classical training, jazz stylings and organic compositions. And there's the band's "uncommon use of the hammered dulcimer [which] melodically leads many of the group’s instrumental pieces." The seven-member outfit features the songwriting of Stephen Roach; they've performed on Michael Johnathon's WoodSongs Old Time Radio Show, LEAF and Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival. Songs of Water takes the stage at The Grey Eagle on Thursday, March 7. Jay Brown also performs. 9 p.m., $8/$10. http://thegreyeagle.com.
