Jacob Goins is a poet who dresses his words in delicate melody, carefully designed.
Born and raised in the Appalachians, Jacob fashions folk music that shares in the gentleness, the rise and fall, and the golden peacefulness of the North Carolina mountains. His writing is born of woods, of the emergence and recession of light, and of the silence in which he lingers. In every humble effort, he strives to make art that doesn’t sing over the quiet, but rather sings with it.
Joining Jacob are his talented wife Lauren and his aunt Jennifer Rhea Linville. We are delighted to bring such a special family band combination to the Canteen.
