Smart Bets: Songs of Water

Greensboro, N.C.-based Songs of Water describes its music as "a spiritual conversation of eclectic sounds and instrumentation." There's also talk of the fusion of ancient and modern, about acoustic grassroots jam sessions meeting classical training, jazz stylings and organic compositions. The eight-member band features the songwriting of Stephen Roach; it also includes Luke and Molly Skaggs — the son and daughter of Grammy-winning recording artist Ricky Skaggs. So, musical know-how? They've got that covered. Songs of Water performs at the LAB on Thursday, Aug. 11. They'll share the stage with Americana artists Troubel, from Raleigh, and Durham pop musician Brett Harris. 9 p.m., $8.
