HAMPTON — Hampton History Museum’s monthly music series will continue with an album release from The Storyweavers.

On Aug. 15 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., The Storyweavers will release their first full-length album “Fallen Sparrow.”

The Storyweavers perform all original Americana, folk and blues music.

The making of the album, “Fallen Sparrow” has been a call back to the band’s roots.

“Fallen Sparrow” is a collection of the five-member band’s love of sharing stories through songs to connect with their audience.

The 12 songs on the album speak of reflection and hope, and of regret as in “I’m Sorry,” or hopeful reminders in “Life Matters.”

To ensure that all can enjoy the stories the music conveys, band members include a deaf performance artist and an American Sign Language interpreter as an integral part of their performance.

The Storyweavers began their journey in January of 2016, after what some would call the winter of discontent.

The first year saw them perform 34 gigs.

So far, in 2018, they have won FM’s Battle of the Bands, been a nominee for Best in Americana from Veer Magazine and are releasing their first full-length album entitled.

Busier than ever, fans can find them on most weekends performing somewhere in Hampton Roads; whether it be a coffee shop, festival, or fundraiser.

“Fallen Sparrow” can be purchased on CDBaby, ITunes and will be available at the museum event.

Beer and wine will be available for purchase.

Proceeds benefit the museum’s educational programs.
