“…a stunning array of cracking songs, intelligent humour, breathtaking arrangements and harmonies to die for.” –Folk Wales Online Magazine
"Tender virtuoso violin solos...Andrews Sisters-like harmonies...Harpeth Rising play their cards with class and conviction." - Lee Zimmerman, No Depression
Payomet is pleased to welcome back Harpeth Rising!
For the past seven years, these three classically trained musicians have challenged the boundaries of folk music and created a sound that is both excitingly unique and surprisingly familiar. Their instrumentals of banjo and violin mixed with cello and foot percussion create an exciting and unique blend of musical genres that include folk, rock, bluegrass, classical, and roots music. Their original lyrics, conveyed through powerful three-part vocals, are both gritty and poignant.
