The Lower Lights are a group of rotating professional musicians that come together as often as possible to string, strum, pick, pluck, pound, and thump out folk and bluegrass-inflected arrangements of well-known (and little known) hymns. They perform in churches and concert halls, living rooms and amphitheaters, and they encourage their audiences to clap, stomp and sing along. The Lower Lights first convened in fall 2009 for five days of recording. They ended the week with 30-plus songs and a debut album! A Hymn Revival, was released in the fall of 2010, and followed up with a second installment in 2012, with the Christmas album Come Let Us Adore Him. Today’s show features: Debra Fotheringham (vocals), Dominic Moore (vocals), Cherie Call (vocals), Sarah Sample (vocals), Dustin Christensen (vocals, guitar), Pat Campbell & Darin LeSueur (percussion), Brian Hardy (piano, pump organ, celesta), Dylan Schorer (guitar); Mark Smith (mandolin, guitar), Scott Wiley (guitar, banjo), Tyler Lambourne, Colin Botts (banjo) Follow Highway 89 on twitter @byuH89
