Harpeth Rising Plays Woodwalk Aug 11

Harpeth Rising returns to Woodwalk Gallery Aug. 11 with a brand new album, Against All Tides.

Describing their style of music as “chamberfolk,” Harpeth Rising is a trio of violin, cello and banjo. Three classically trained musicians make up the band and they play original music, as intricately arranged as a string quartet, lyrically rooted in the singer/songwriter tradition, and wrapped in three-part vocal harmonies reminiscent of both Appalachia and Medieval Europe. Hallmarks of their music include expansive three-part harmonies, consummate musicianship and a deft, yet soulful, lyrical perspective.

Against All Tides, Harpeth Rising’s sophomore album as a trio, is proof that authenticity and complexity can live in harmony. It is an exploration of spirituality in place of fundamentalism, uncertainty as philosophy, and an unwavering declaration that human connection is the ultimate force for good in the universe. The songs, crafted lyrically by Jordana Greenberg and arranged by all three members of the trio – Maria Di Meglio, Michelle Younger and Greenberg – do not intend to distract from the social and political atmosphere. They are the vehicle by which the band has chosen to add their voices to the ongoing fight for understanding and respect.

Woodwalk Gallery features contemporary art and musical performances in an intimate, historic barn setting. The concert begins at 7 pm, and admission is $20. Woodwalk Gallery is located at 6746 Cty G, Egg Harbor. For more information visit
