Dec. 3, Winter Wind Concert, Harpeth Rising, 7:00 pm, $20
Unapologetic genre-benders, Harpeth Rising fuses Folk, Newgrass, Rock and Classical into something
organically unique. These are three classically trained musicians playing original music, as intricately
arranged as a string quartet, lyrically rooted in the singer/songwriter tradition, and wrapped in threepart
vocal harmonies reminiscent of both Appalachia and Medieval Europe. Harpeth Rising’s
sophomore album as a trio, Against All Tides, is proof that authenticity and complexity can live in
harmony. The songs crafted lyrically by Jordana Greenberg and arranged together with Maria Di
Meglio and Michelle Younger, the other trio members, are the vehicle by which the band has chosen to
add their voices to an ongoing fight for understanding and respect. www.harpethrising.com/
