Since their formation in 2009, Harpeth Rising has been building a reputation by breaking down musical boundaries.  Their virtuosic instrumentals of banjo and fiddle mixed with cello and percussion create an exciting and unique blend of musical genres.  Their vocals, soaring and intimate, convey powerful lyrics that are both personal and topical.  The group met while studying classical music at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music and were united - and continue to be driven by - their eclectic musical interests.  Within one year of their formation and their move to Music City, they were voted 'Best Local Band in Nashville' by the Tennessean.  Harpeth Rising has been touring both nationally and internationally for four years with performances that include the Cambridge Folk Festival, The London Folk Festival, Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour, Music City Roots, The Bluebird, The Frome Festival, and ROMP Music Festival.  A little bit bluegrass, a little bit classical, a little bit roots and a whole lot of original, Harpeth Rising is a band to watch. 


Harpeth Rising released their fourth album, 'Tales From Jackson Bridge,' in October of 2013, the same month it reached No. 6 on the International Folk Charts.  As the steampunk-themed album cover suggests, the music of this album brings a fresh and modern take on old genres of music with a great deal of attitude.  While this album remains true to Harpeth Rising's folk and classical roots throughout, it expands on their blues, Latin, and rock influences and adds in some new flavors such as Texas Swing and Gypsy Jazz.  This constant innovation combining old and new genres of music, technical mastery, and heartfelt sensibility has earned Harpeth Rising the distinction of one of the most engaging and dynamic new groups in folk music today.  The album has already been named in Americana Radio Top Five Most Added List, the Roots Music Report's Top Forty, Alternate Root's Top Ten Songs of the Week, and Amazon's Top Twenty Hot New Releases in Roots Rock.  Harpeth Rising's previous albums, 'The End of the World,' 'Dead Man's Hand,' and their eponymous debut album, have landed them in the Top Ten on the International Folk Charts, on numerous Best-of lists, and garnered praise throughout the US and the UK.


On April 26th at 7:30pm, Harpeth Rising will be performing at the Brown County Playhouse in Nashville, IN (70 S Van Buren St.).  The Brown County Playhouse is a performing arts center that has earned its reputation as the "heart of the community," by hosting a wide array of celebrated artists with regional ties and international recognition.  Tickets are $18.50 and reservations are available at 812-988-6555 or http://www.BrownCountyPlayhouse.org.
