The Ridges

The Ridges are an orchestral folk rock group from the Appalachian college town of Athens, Ohio. Comprised of the collaboration between Victor Rasgaitis (guitar, vocals) and Talor Smith (cello, vocals), the group formed at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. Regularly featuring a rotating cast of guest musicians adding instruments ranging from additional cellos to viola, violin, trumpet, banjo, mandolin, bass, vocals, percussion and accordion to compliment layered, introspective songwriting and passionate, high-energy performances, the ensemble brings to life a theme of dark romanticism emphasized by their name. The band name, taken from the allegedly haunted local Victorian landmark that was formerly the Athens Asylum, speaks to the group's fascination with folklore and classical influences as well as their deep rooted connection to the city of Athens.
