After meeting in law school, Lara and Heidi began performing together at local coffee shops and events in Berkeley, CA. After finishing law school in 2007, the band briefly separated until Heidi and Lara joyfully reunited in Washington, D.C. in 2008. LunaSol has since given several performances at Dahlak and Busboys & Poets in Washington, D.C., singing a mixture of folk-rock favorites and original songs by Lara Eilhardt. Listen online at
