Harpeth Rising

Harpeth Rising

Billed as an “Americana Sensation” by the legendary Nashville radio station WSM, this group of young classically trained musicians continues making an immense impact wherever they play, bringing an exciting and distinctive sound to the Americana genre. With a banjo and fiddle, you might think they’re traditional bluegrass, but think again: cello and hand drums round out the group, creating a truly new sound. A little bit bluegrass, a little bit folk, a little bit classical, and whole lot of original, HARPETH RISING is a band to watch. They've toured twice in the U.K., including a show at the prestigious Cambridge Folk Festival in Summer 2011. Closer to home they've been voted "Best Local Band in Nashville" and have appeared on the critically acclaimed shows Music City Roots and Nashville Traditions. On tour with their third and brand new album, End of the World, they head back to the Uncle on the heels of a nearly sold out show in January. Named for the small but powerful river outside of Nashville, TN, they met while pursuing classical music degrees at The Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. Their original music layers rich instrumental arrangements with four part harmonies and lyrics that range from the fresh experiences of their travels to passionate social and political issues. “The future of original string music,” (Keith Harrelson, Moonlight on the Mountain) they have performed at music festivals, concert halls and clubs throughout the US and UK, dazzling audiences with their dynamic, high-spirited live show.
