December Concert 2017

Harpeth Rising – Women’s Folk Trio

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2017 @ 7:30pm  

Describing themselves as “chamberfolk,” Harpeth Rising is three classically-trained musicians playing intricately arranged original music. Building from the tonal depth of the cello, the group layers in the shimmering sounds of a violin and the strikingly natural addition of a banjo. They fuse folk, newgrass, rock and classical into a sound that is organically unique. Their live performances are high-energy kinetic events in which both their abilities and their passion for performance are obvious.
