The Brown Mountain Lightning Bugs

May 14 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

What do you get when you mix Appalachian folk, The Grateful Dead, and Tom Waits? The Brown Mountain Lightning Bugs. This husband and wife duo from North Carolina perform an eclectic mix of original music that is sure to keep your toes tappin’ all evening.

The Brown Mountain Lightning Bugs, known to their friends as Kendra and Zack Harding, began gig-swapping as solo artists in 2014. They bonded over these shared gigs, their common love of dogs, and an enthusiasm for hiking and decided to tie the knot in the fall of 2015. 

Combining their unique backgrounds that range from classic rock to classical guitar, they create a blend of original music that lies somewhere between traditional and trippy.

The Bugs have played extensively throughout the Southeast, including performances in The Crown at the Carolina Theatre, The Grey Eagle’s Patio Show Series, Ol’ Front Porch Music Festival, and at Awendaw Green. Their sophomore album Folk(ish) is out now.
